Hermitage Museum

This morning a driving tour will give us an introduction to St Petersburg. We will make our way along the famed Nevsky Prospekt, past the museum & university districts & a few photo stops will be made along the way at places such as the magnificent St Isaac's Cathedral & The Bronze Horseman. Later, we will enjoy a guided tour of the Hermitage Museum in the Winter Palace - which houses one of the biggest & best art collections on earth. The rest of the day is free for you to further explore. Most of the city sights are dotted along & just off the main thoroughfare - Nevsky Prospekt. It’s an easy city to find your bearings & get around. St Petersburg has a spirited restaurant, bar & jazz club scene, plus some of Russia’s best beers.

During our time in St Petersburg there may be the chance to join optional evening excursions such as a canal cruise (May to September), a traditional Cossacks performance or a night at the Russian Ballet. All optional excursions are subject to availability, & are booked & payable locally.

St Pete's sightseeing

We start today's touring with a visit to Peter & Paul Fortress & the Peter & Paul Cathedral, which houses the tombs of many tsars including the Romanov monarchs. Then we'll head out of the city to explore the beautiful gardens of Peterhof on the Gulf of Finland in the summer or visit Catherine Palace at Tsarskoe Selo in winter (or Pavlosk Palace if Catherine Palace is closed).

Often referred to as Russia’s ‘Versailles’, the gardens of Peterhof are a wonderland of greenery & flowers, sweeping vistas & ornate architectural decorations, with spectacular gold fountains. At Catherine Palace its the exterior & the interiors of this lavishly decorated building that really catch the eye - & the lavish Amber room is a real highlight! After stopping for a hearty traditional lunch at a local restaurant, we'll continue on for a guided tour of the exquisite interior of The Church on Spilled Blood.
