The following directions are from the RER Line C station at Boulevard Victor-Pont du Garigliano in the 15th Arrondissement of Paris. The walk shouldn't take more than four or five minutes, even with luggage, over smooth pavement and a gentle downhill slope.

If you're coming on a westbound train along the Left Bank of Paris, make sure that your train is headed for Versailles - Château (a.k.a. Versaille - Rive Gauche) or Saint-Quentin-en-Yvellines. Train destinations are shown on RER station monitors.
