One of the World's most magnificent Cities, St Petersburg stretches over forty-four islands. The City was built by Peter the Great in the 18th Century to rival the splendour of Paris and combines a wealth of palaces, churches and museums.

A full day of sightseeing includes a general sightseeing tour of the City along with visits to the Hermitage, the World-famous Art Treasury, Peterhof Park and the Church of our Saviour on Spilled Blood, one of the City's landmarks, as well as several photo stops.

WHAT YOU VISIT:

The Hermitage - The Tsar's former Winter Palace and four other buildings that house one of the world's premier art collections. Your 1.5 - 2 hour guided tour visits the display of rooms, which contain over three million art works, including paintings by Da Vinci, Rafael and Rembrandt. Designed by Rastrelli. The Baroque Winter Palace boasts patterned parquet floors, ornate staircases, moulded and decorated ceilings.

The Church on Spilled Blood - was built on the spot where the Emperor was mortally wounded. The interior of the Church is decorated with incredibly detailed mosaics designed and created by the most prominent Russian artists of the day.

Peterhof Park - Travel to another former summer Imperial residence. Set in magnificent gardens, Peterhof is reminiscent of Versailles. It was almost completely destroyed by the Nazis in World War II but has been restored to its full splendour. The gardens are dotted with countless fountains, charming pavilions and summer houses.

The fountains of Peterhof are one of the most famous tourist attractions. The diversity of fountains in the park is surprising. From monumental ensembles like the Samson Cascade to the ever-popular Joke Fountains, including one which sprays anyone who steps on a particular paving stone.

During the tour there will be time given to get lunch, your guide will be on hand to assist you with this.

PLEASE NOTE THE HERMITAGE IS CLOSED ON A MONDAY, SO THIS TOUR WILL NOT RUN ON A MONDAY.
