Are you considering the RER for a rapid commute to Versailles?? I thought the train took a lot longer.

The train is actually faster as far as the ride from Paris is concerned (Paris-Montparnasse -- Versailles-Chantiers in 12 minutes for the fastest ones, slightly over 15 minutes for the other direct ones). But Versailles-Chantiers is further from the Castle than Versailles-Rives Gauche and Paris-Montparnasse is not convenient from all locations in Paris.

Line 8 to Invalides, change there for RER Line C towards Versailles-RIVE GAUCHE.

Thanks superheterodyne-
another question-when we get to Versaille--can we walk to the castle or do we take a cab or taxi or bus?

Thanks

You can walk; it takes only about 10 minutes from the station.
