Tips from locals
It will take you a day to visit Versailles, either by car or with the RER C which you can take at the François Mitterrand Library Station. To visit preferably in summer or spring, the gardens are as beautiful as the castle.
Great outdoor activities - boating on the lake, cycling or just enjoying the palace grounds. Perfect spot for a picnic.
To be seen at least once in a lifetime! Dont forget the petit Trianon and its farm
L’ancienne maison des rois de France, dont Louis XIV, le Roi Soleil. un lieu somptueux, chargé d’histoires, à voir au moins une fois dans sa vie
At the station Javel, at 5 minutes walk from the flat, you can take the RERC train which gets you directly, in 20 minutes, to Versailles, at 5 minutes walk from the famous castle and its wonderful gardens.
Classé depuis 30 ans au patrimoine mondial de l’humanité, le château de Versailles constitue l’une des plus belles réalisations de l’art français au XVIIe siècle. Comptez un à deux jours pour la visite complète (Chateau, Parc, Trianon et Ecuries)

Nothing to add given the reputation. 35 mins drive or train with one connection in La Défense railway.
Absolutely unique in the world, can't miss it! Castle of Louis XIVth, known as the Sun King

“If you go to the Eiffel Tower you should avoid the elevators (where will have to wait at least one hour) and take the stairs. It is far easier that it seems until the second floor (the third being quite high). Morevoer climbing inside the tower make feel being in the heart of the structure and let you take time to see”

“1 hour from La Ravenne. Take A4 towards Paris and follow exit. Disneyland Paris, formerly Euro Disney Resort, is an entertainment resort in Marne-la-Vallée, France, a new town located 32 km east of the center of Paris. A perfect and magical place for kids to visit.”

“The Champs Elysees is one of the most famous streets in the world, so be prepared to come up against a fair few tourists, though you can sidestep the hordes pretty easily by exploring the side streets just off the main drag. For most, it's a mandatory stop, if only to catch a glimpse of the monumental Arc de Triomphe which crowns the avenue and which was commissioned by Napoléon to celebrate the armies of empire. The imposing tree-lined avenue is home to a mix of chain stores and luxury brands which, once passed, will take you down to La Concorde, where you’ll find some nice green areas, the French Government buildings, as well as the Grand Palais - a must-see for art and architecture fans alike. Don't miss Rue Saint Honoré - the epitome of chic Parisian shopping which take you all the way to the hip independent bars and shops of Le Marais.”

“A unique view of the Champs-Élysées, the world’s most beautiful avenue. The Arc de triomphe was begun in 1806, on the orders of Napoleon I to honour the victories of his Grande Armée. Inspired by the great arches of antiquity, this iconic monument bears the names of battles and generals from the Revolution and the First Empire. Every evening, the flame is lit on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Great War. The terrace provides superb views both by day and night across the city and its great sweeping avenues. ”
