RER C - Versailles, Paris: 6 reviews and 5 photos

  Versailles Rive Gauche RER platform.
by breughel

To travel by the RER C5 to Versailles Rive Gauche (Château de Versailles) you need a "BILLET ORIGINE-DESTINATION" since the end 2010 (before it was called "Billet Ile-de-France") which combines Metro inside Paris and the RER trip from Paris to Versailles RIVE GAUCHE.
You can buy this Billet Origine-Destination (3,25 € since 1/01/2012) as well as the return ticket at the metro stations desks or the machines. For details see my tip.
You have to validate your ticket when you enter your Metro station but also when entering the RER platforms and leaving the station of Versailles. So keep your ticket for the entire trip.

When arriving on the platform of the RER station (for example St-Michel Notre-Dame or Invalides) look well out to take the right RER C5 to Versailles RIVE GAUCHE (do not take the other RER C7 or C8 trains).

There are trains about every 25 minutes and the trip takes 30 minutes. The RER of 08.26 h at Invalides station will bring you at the opening of the Château gates at 9.00 h.

    I don't use the Métro very much within Paris, but I think next time I will have to use the RER C5 to get to Versailles and back, and probably the RER B4 to get to Massy and back.
