The “Hermitage and city tour” package is the most effective way to see all the main attractions of St Petersburg and the best value for money. A 3 hour orientation city tour will familiarize you with the main sights of the city – the Palace square, St Isaac’s cathedral, the Savior on Spilled blood church, the Nevsky prospekt, Peter and Paul fortress and many other smaller monuments. After a lunch break in a local cafe where you can try typical, delicious and inexpensive Russian food we will admire the treasures of the Hermitage museum. You will see the stunning interiors of the Winter palace, the former main residense of Russian tsars, and masterpieces by the most famous masters – Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Rubens and so on. After the tour we will walk to your hotel. If you want to do the Hermitage and the city tour on different days, please visit city tour and Hermitage museum pages, but it’s cheaper to do these tours the same day rather than book 2 different tours.
If you are interested, it’s possible to include visits to St Isaac’s cathedral, the Savior on the Spilled blood and the Peter and Paul fortress.
