The Gare Montparnasse is one of the 6 travelling hubs in the city of Paris. If you are going to Versailles during the day, this is probably the local where you will embark. It takes around 30 minutes or more to Versailles. Make sure you go to the bathroom first, as we didn't find one inside the train. Also, ticket will cost around This is a place with restaurants and several platforms, so you need to be careful to where you are going and if you are taking the right train. Bathrooms are paid.

The Montparnasse station is one of the main transportation intersections and hubs in Paris. It spreads on several levels offering metro, train and bus services. The signage is good but due to huge crowds some of them can be overlooked. Despite the above, I find it easier to use and better than the Gare du Nord. However, you can always ask the staff for directions if knowing a little bit French. As in many other stations in the French capital my main objective it's pretty dirty.

This is a huge train station divided in 3areas so people literally run from one to another and trains leave on time. 2guys offered to assist and my mom found one guys hand in her bag, he didn't get any but it was shocking. Be aware! Get yourself acquainted on the area where your train will depart and give yourself enough time to walk. Best to buy ticket online and ticketing can help you print as long as it's within their operating hours. The ticket prices are more expensive when you compare online.

A very busy station, with access to a few different Metro lines on the lowest level. The main floor has the "N" train that goes to Chateau Versailles. Two floors above that are the Grandes Lignes trains. And it is on that level, Level 2, where you will find most of the food options (primarily sandwiches, desserts, beverages, salads). The station also has a foreign exchange counter, a left-luggage service, a manned lost and found, and a variety of shops. If you need info from a real live person, in regards to a Grandes Lignes train, or have an issue in regards to them, go to Hall 1, at the far end of the floor, where you will find a "customer service". I was under the impression that there was free wifi, but to be honest, I wasn't able to connect to it without a password. There are a few maps online of Gare Montparnasse, which you may find helpful to reference in advance, because this is a very busy and fast moving station, compared to some of the others.
