PETERHOF & HERMITAGE

Shore Tours in St Petersburg

Make the most of your day as you spend time at two of the most visited sights of St Petersburg, with lunch included.

Transfer to Peterhof – the town of palaces, fountains and parks – the most brilliant of all the summer residences of the Russian Tsars, located on the coast of the Gulf of Finland. Upon arrival here, you ascend the main staircase and visit a suite of sumptuously appointed staterooms - especially the opulent Throne Room. See Peter’s Oak Study, one of the few rooms to have survived unaltered. Outside the Grand Palace enjoy a view of the Grand Cascade, which comprises three waterfalls and a stunning avenue of 64 fountains and 37 gilded statues, along with a great variety of fountains, which can also be found in the Lower Park.

Before commencing the second half of this fascinating tour, you will enjoy lunch in a local restaurant – including a shot of vodka. Back in the city, it is time to visit St Petersburg’s most famous museum, the Hermitage – Russia’s largest collection of art, with over 2.8 million works, and one of the most prestigious museums in the world. On proud display are paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Rafael, Michelangelo, Titian, El Greco, Velasquez, Goya, Rubens and Rembrandt.

Is this tour right for you?

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU? This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or wheelchair users, and all participants should be aware that you will be on your feet for the duration of the visits in two very busy environments. There are no lifts in the Grand Palace of Peterhof and only one small lift in the Hermitage. We cannot guarantee that the room in which the lift deposits participants will be open during your visit, and if the lift is used, you will have to leave the tour group. It should be noted that slippers/over shoes have to be worn over your outdoor shoes to protect the flooring when visiting the Palace of Peterhof – extra care should be taken as this will make the floor surface more slippery. There is usually a charge to use toilet facilities – at time of printing this was 50 cents ($/€). Please note that it cannot be guaranteed that the fountains at Peterhof will be functioning during your visit. Photography is prohibited in the Peterhof Palace. 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. Realistically we appreciate that you will not see as much as you would like – it would take years to view the whole Hermitage collection!
