Shore Tours in St Petersburg

This is your opportunity to visit the Hermitage – Russia’s largest collection of art, which has evolved into one of the most prestigious museums in the world.

Firstly, you will walk through the Winter Palace’s superb staterooms which include the Field Marshall’s Hall, Small Throne Room dedicated to the memory of Peter the Great, Armorial Hall with its vast gilded columns, 1812 Gallery displaying portraits of Russian military heroes of the Napoleonic War, and the Hall of St George bedecked with cararra marble and gilt bronze.

Proceed to the Small Hermitage and find yourself in the Pavilion Hall. Here, marble columns support an elegant gallery and 28 sparkling cut-glass chandeliers. Exhibits include the unusual Peacock Clock in its glass cage. Turning right takes you to the Old Hermitage, devoted to 13th to 18th century Italian art. On proud display are two paintings by Leonardo da Vinci (Madonna with a Flower and Litta Madonna), an early work by Rafael (Connestabile Madonna) and a later work by him (Holy Family). Other names simply roll off the tongue: Titian, El Greco, Velasquez, Goya, Rubens, the list goes on.

Is this tour right for you?

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU? A certain pace is required to keep up with the group. Although there is one small lift, we cannot guarantee that the room in which the lift deposits guests will be open during your visit. If the lift is used, you will have to leave the tour group. Please note that special collections will not be viewed in the Hermitage, and some rooms may not always be accessible – please also note that the collection by French impressionists is being moved to a building away from the main museum, so may not be viewed. Paintings are occasionally loaned to other museums, so those detailed may not be on display. Realistically we appreciate that you will not see as much as you would like – it would take years to view the whole Hermitage collection!
