See the best of St. Petersburg just in two days

Welcome to St. Petersburg! Feel the charm of Old Saint-Petersburg and Life of Romanovs' in just two days! The tour perfectly suits Cruise Ship Passengers as well.
During these two days you'll definitely get the feeling of Romanovs' Tsars Family's everyday life, the understanding of what Saint-Petersburg - the most magical city in the World - is like. You will get to know more about the art and history of Imperial Russia through visiting the Hermitage, St. Isaac Cathedral and many other places.
Saint-Petersburg is also famous for the wonderful outskirts, which are a chain of numerous Summer Palaces of the Romanov Family. Grand Palace in Peterhoff is closed on Mondays, but still lots to see there! The Hermitage is closed on Mondays.
Please note that the itinerary is just a suggestion. I will do my best to accommodate any special wishes.
