Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach for a narrated drive through St. Petersburg. Your route travels through Vasilievsky Island to Palace Square, passing the Rostral Columns and offering views of Peter and Paul Fortress.

The Hermitage comprises the Tsar's former Winter Palace and four other buildings. Together they house one of the world's greatest art collections - over two million works of art - including masterpieces by Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Titian to name a few. Your tour visits the display rooms in the Winter Palace. Designed by Rastrelli, the Baroque palace boasts parquet floors, ornate grand staircases, superbly moulded and decorated ceilings and gilded apartments.

Your visit also includes the Gold Room. Its collection of jewelry and art objects include classical antiquities, 17th and 19th-century, jewelry designed for members of the imperial court, and a stunning collection of 18th and 19th-century snuff boxes.

After your tour, board your coach for the return trip to the ship.
