Spend 2 days exploring the most magnificent and luxurious places in Saint Petersburg


In two days you will visit the most magnificent and luxurious places in Saint Petersburg and outside the city.

The first day we will enjoy Pushkin. We will visit Catherine's Palace (Amber Room), then we will walk in the Imperial park of Pushkin. After that we will have a trip to Pavlovsk (Palace of Paul I and the park). This will be followed by a lunch stop where we will enjoy traditional lunch at the cafe or restaurant. Then we will enjoy a tour around the grand Saint Isaak's Cathedral. After that I will accompany you to the place where you would like to finish the tour.

The next day we will visit Peterhof (Big Palace and Low Park) and we will feel imperial atmosphere at the Hermitage.
