Full description
Day 1:

Starting your day early at 8:30, begin with a city overview tour, including the most famous and beautiful sights of St. Petersburg. Move on to Pushkin, also known as Tzarskoe Selo, and visit the former Tsars' summer residence - Catherine's Palace, including the famous Amber Room - known locally as the 8th Wonder of the World. Enjoy some free time to have lunch in one of the local cafes or explore the area, before embarking on the Peterhof Tour. Here you can see the Upper Garden, resembling Versailles in its planning and, of course, the Lower Park with its incomparable fountains. On the way back to St. Petersburg, you have a chance to see the part of St. Petersburg most tourists miss, before returning to the ship at 17:00.

Day 2:

Begin your day at 8:00 with a private cruise along the rivers and canals of the Venice of the North. Enjoy the beauty of The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, which startles visitors with its might and multicoloured domes. Have some free time to explore the area before your visit to the Hermitage Museum, including the Winter Palace, the small Hermitage, the New Hermitage, and the Old Hermitage. Take in the art collections, with over three million works of art, and the spectacular state and private rooms. Conclude your day with a tour of St Isaac's Cathedral, ranked as number one in the world for the richness of its interior decoration, before returning to your ship at 17:00.
