A perfect way to see all the main attractions

During this one-day tour you will explore the main attractions of St Petersburg. On a 4-hour city tour by car we will see the most famous places of interests and will visit the beautiful cathedrals of the city - St Isaac's, the Savior on the Spilled blood and the Peter and Paul fortress. After that we can make a lunch break in a local cafe where you can try delicious & inexpensive Russian food. A lunch break is optional, but I guess you will need it before we go to the Hermitage museum. There we will visit all the buildings of the main museum complex and you will be astonished by the beauty of the halls and the rich art collection. Works by Raphael, Michaelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt and many other artists are waiting for you! After a busy day we will walk or take public transport to your hotel.

The tour can be customized as a visa-free shore excursion.
