Full description
The Hermitage has more than 3 million art masterpieces. Among them, there are 15 thousand paintings, 12,000 sculptures, drawings, coins, medals and a variety of other masterpieces. The collection at the Treasure Galleries holds a very rich selection of jewelry masterpieces owned by the Russian Imperial family. Two magnificent halls present their visitors with many masterworks of jewelry from various countries, and from ancient times to the early 20th century. The first gallery, called the Golden Rooms has works from Eurasia, the Black Sea Littoral in antiquity, and the Orient. It consists of around 1,500 works made from gold and dating from the 7th century B.C. to the 19th century A.D. The main idea of the second section, which is called the Diamond Rooms, is to show the development of the jeweler's craft over the course of mankind's many centuries, from the third millennium B.C. to the start of the 20th century. After you have been given a comprehensive overview by your guide, you will be able to remain in the Hermitage, admiring the vast array of art, for the remainder of the day.

Fabulous overview of the Hermitage

Knowledge was great, English good and happy to answer our questions. Small group (we were lucky to only have 4) and Leda’s perseverance in making our entry quick was much appreciated. Needs to hold up red GYG sign though in future as per instructions on our ticket. We recommend this 3 hour tour.

Visita Hermitage

La guida in lingua italiana che ci ha fatto visitare il museo era molto preparata .Il tour ci ha permesso di vedere i quadri e non dolo più importanti in in museo enorme. Attività che consiglio anche perché ci ha permesso di evitare la coda per acquistare i biglietti d’ingresso.

Tutto bene, nonostante la folla !

Ho visitato il museo Ermitage a Luglio 2019 con visita guidata in italiano. Il museo era super affollato, come di consueto in questo periodo, ma la nostra guida Irina è stata molto efficiente a gestire il nostro piccolo gruppo di 6 persone con grande abilità, consentendoci di ammirare almeno i più rilevanti tesori di questo straordinario e immenso museo. Certamente senza di lei la visita sarebbe stata molto più difficoltosa, se non addirittura impossibile. Complimenti alla bravissima Irina, puntuale e professionale. Un consiglio per tutti : affidatevi ad una guida (brava come Irina) per "affrontare" l'Ermitage : il prezzo pagato vale tutto.
