Tour Overview

The Hermitage Museum was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and is true jewel in the crown of this historic city.

Here, your guide will walk you through some of the thousand rooms that house many incredible works of art. Explore the display rooms that showcase paintings by Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Titian and study some of their Oriental, Russian or Prehistoric art, dating from the Palaeolithic to the Iron Ages.

Designed by Rastrelli, the baroque Winter Palace is truly a sight to behold thanks to its richly patterned parquet floors, ornate staircases and gilded ceilings.
