Hermitage Museum Tour
We would suggest this activity for the afternoon – you woud visit the Hermitage Museum which contains the largest art collection in the world. It takes years to see the whole of it, but under the direction of your experienced private guide you will see the best of the collection in 2 - 2.5 hours before exploring the museum on your own.
You'll enter the Winter Palace (1762) – a gem of Russian baroque and the main residence of the Romanovs. The tour takes you to see the State rooms and art galleries of the palace, as well as other buildings of the Museum: Small Hermitage, Old Hermitage, New Hermitage and the Hermitage Theatre. Our tour will include works from some of the great masters, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Titian, Rafael, Rembrandt, Van Dyck and others. After the tour, free time in the Hermitage, or for visiting the newly renovated General Staff building across from Winter Palace to see fabulous French Impressionist collections.
