Full description
After meeting with your guide and driver on day one at the pier you will start a city tour. You will be guided through the most breathtaking spots of St. Petersburg including Spit of Basil Island, St. Isaac’s Square, Monument of Peter the Great, Theater Square with the famous Mariinsky Theater, Nevsky Prospekt and more. From the city center proceed to the former summer residence outside the city - Peterhof. This residence is famous for its fountain park decorated with statues and small pavilions. The most exciting part of the garden tour is seeing so called “trick fountains” which were designed to entertain the guests coming to the Peterhof grounds. 

Once you've worked up a bit of an appetite, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Upon your return to the city enjoy a scenic boat ride along the rivers and canals of St Petersburg. The tour will finish at your ship.

On the second day of your tour see more of the city highlights, stroll along Nevsky prospect and finally observe the magnificent collections of the Hermitage, the largest museum in the country. There, see all the main highlights: Winter Palace State rooms, Hanging Garden, and masterpieces of the art collection including works of Rembrandt, Rafael, and Leonardo Da Vinci. After having lunch in one of the local cafes see the Church on the Spilled Blood that is considered to be the museum of mosaics. Finally, see the highlights of the legendary Nevsky Prospect.
