Highlights of the tour:

St Petersburg
St Petersburg

St Petersburg is a former Russian capital and a stunning city, crowded with splendid palaces, impressive historical monuments, wide boulevards, beautiful bridges and is renowned as the Ballet Capital of the World.


Lose yourself amongst the treasures of one of Russia’s best known sights and arguably the largest collection of fine art in the world. Masterpieces from artists such as Da Vinci, Rembrandt and Kandinsky make the Hermitage an unforgettable visit.

Catherine Palace & Amber Room
Catherine Palace & Amber Room

In the quaint village of Pushkin, on the outskirts of St Petersburg, lies one of the most impressive and iconic buildings in Russia; Catherine’s Palace. The pastel exterior is flamboyantly embellished with gold accents and the interior is far from modestly decorated! The palace is home to the famous Amber Room with its mysterious past which our guides will tell you all about. The residence was destroyed in World War II and has been under construction ever since.

Mariinsky Theatre
Mariinsky Theatre

The Mariinsky Theatre is a historic theatre of opera and ballet in Saint Petersburg. For more than two centuries the Mariinsky Theatre has been presenting the world with a plethora of great artistes, such as Fyodor Chaliapin, Anna Pavlova, Rudolf Nureyev, Mikhail Baryshnikov and many more.

Please get in touch with our Destination Experts to order tickets for one of its illustrious ballet and opera performances.

Peter & Paul Fortress
Peter & Paul Fortress

The first structure to be built in St. Petersburg, and thus the birthplace of the city, it never served its intended defensive function. Instead it has had a rich, hugely varied, and sometimes sinister history as a military base, a home of government departments, the burial ground of the Russian Imperial family, the site of groundbreaking scientific experiments, and a forbidding jail that held some of Russia's most prominent political prisoners.


Known as the “Russian Versailles”, Peterhof Palace and Park is a must see at any time of the year. Famous for its myriad of fountains, the grounds of the palace become a haven for tourists in the peak summer months. Look out for the ‘Joke Fountains’ – if you step on the wrong paving stone, you will get wet! If you’re not travelling in the summer, never fear; the parks foliage is beautiful in the autumn and the grounds transform into a striking crystallised wonderland during winter months so there’s never a wrong time to visit.

On arrival in Russia’s second capital you will be met by our driver and transferred to your hotel in the city centre. Relax or begin your adventure with independent exploration.



After breakfast meet your guide at the hotel reception and get your bearings on a morning city tour to explore the best of Russia’s former capital. Your city tour will include a ride along Nevsky Prospect lined with marble palaces of Russian royalty and aristocracy, with most fashionable boutiques and art salons arranged in old settings of the 18th century; the Admiralty; the Monastery of Alexander Nevsky (one of four Russia’s Lavras with its magnificent Trinity Cathedral and its cemetery where Dostoevsky, Tchaikovsky and other world celebrities were buried); St. Isaac Cathedral with «The Bronze Horseman» unveiled in Senate Square; the Resurrection Cathedral on the Spilt Blood, one of the most unusual monuments of Russian Orthodox architecture built on the spot where Alexander II was assassinated and many more. Explore onward to the Peter and Paul Fortress and uncover its intriguing history. (B)

From October to April, the order of excursions may be changed: the Peter and Paul Fortress visit will be moved to Day 3 and on Day 2, you will visit Hermitage.


petersburg 02

Today is the day of great experiences: you will visit the Treasury of the world culture - the Hermitage. Stand back and surround yourself with one of the world’s largest art collections and view masterpieces from all time greats including Da Vinci, Monet and Michelangelo. (B)

Catherine Palace visit: between January and April and October - December.

Peterhof visit: between May and September


Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before transferring to the airport for your flight home as you wave goodbye to Russia, until next time! (B)
