8-hours St. Petersburg: Full-day Tour Including Museum Entrance Fees


Tour Information

This full-day sightseeing tour will take you to see the art treasures at St. Petersburg’s famous Hermitage Museum and to the Peter and Paul Fortress, where the city began. You’ll also visit St. Isaac’s Cathedral, and admire its massive gold dome, one of the largest in the world.

Have lunch at one of the city’s most respected restaurants and bargain with local vendors for souvenirs and gifts. After lunch you’ll tour the gorgeous Church on the Spilled Blood, which houses the world’s 2nd-largest mosaic museum.

On your visit to the Hermitage Museum you’ll have a chance to see a part of the 2.7 million exhibits of world art that range from Ancient Egypt to early 20th-century Europe. The museum houses works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Titian, and boasts unique collections of Rembrandt, Rubens, and the French Impressionists. You’ll also benefit from the commentary by your knowledgeable guide.

To finalize your overview of the city, you’ll head to the water for the Rivers & Canals Boat Tour. This is undoubtedly one of the best ways to see the magnificent monuments of St. Petersburg. See the sights of the Venise du Nord from a different perspective. St. Petersburg features more than 70 rivers and canals that wind their way through the city, with around 400 bridges crossing these waterways.
