Description

Start this full-day tour with an introductory drive, covering the highlights of the city. Designed by Europe’s most imaginative architects in the 18th and 19th centuries, St. Petersburg’s UNESCO protected center is one of the world’s architectural masterpieces.
This tour combines visits to the former splendid summer (Catherine) and winter (Hermitage) Palaces of the Royal Family.
Take a pleasant drive from St. Petersburg through the suburbs to the opulent Catherine Palace.This estate, in what was formerly known as Tsarskoe Selo,was the summer residence of the imperial family. Explore its grand state rooms, the superb white marble Grand Staircase and the spectacularly baroque Great Hall, an astonishing room of gilt, carved wood and mirrors and the famous Amber Room that was looted during WWII and has been recently recreated to its former glory.
Today you will also visit the Hermitage (the Winter Palace).With the possible exception of the Louvre, there is no museum in the world that rivals the Hermitage in size and quality. Its collection is so large that it would take years to view it in its entirety. The collection is displayed in 4 buildings built in the 18th-19th centuries, the home of the Russian Tsars. Your guide will focus your attention on the highlights of its collection. The museum is especially strong in Italian Renaissance and French
Impressionist paintings, as well as possessing outstanding collections of works by Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse. The splendor of the museum is epitomized by the grandeur of numerous reception halls, such as the Throne, Ball, Malachite and Gold Rooms
