Hermitage tour in St Petersburg

from $45.00

On a   private tour of the Hermitage museum in St Petersburg  you will see the main highlights of the collection and  the beautiful state  rooms of the Winter palace.  The Hermitage is one of the largest museums in the world as its collection counts about 3 million objects.  They are located in several hundreds of  rooms of 5 buildings.  You won’t get lost  there with a private guide!

During the private Hermitage tour we will walk through all the buildings of the main museum complex  talking about the history of the palace and the museum and tracing the evolution of the world art.  You will see masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Tizian, Rembrandt, Rubens  and  many other artists. Feel free to tell us about your interests and we will try to customize the Hermitage  tour.

You will see that a tour of the Hermitage is not a boring art lecture about composition, the shades of color and painting techniques. There are lots of memorable stories to share without all these details. In the Hermitage the guide is also helpful because the museum  is too big and too amazing – the first time you come, you don’t know what to look at. It has magnificent interiors, paintings, sculpture, furniture and if you come on your own you may end up just wandering around and skipping something that is really special.

You can choose one of the following options: a Basic  Hermitage museum tour that covers the main museum complex (including the Winter palace) or a Comprehensive Hermitage  tour. The Comprehensive tour   also includes the impressionist and post-impressionist collection  exhibited in the General Staff building. If you love Monet, Renoir, Gaugin, Van Gogh, Picasso – it will be the right choice.

Please note that  the Gold or the Diamond rooms (the treasuries) are not included. If you are interested in visiting them, please let us know in advance.
