St. Petersburg in Style: 3-day Winter Experience

The romance and solemn beauty of St. Petersburg in the Winter months awaits you on this 3-day excursion of the city and its surrounding provinces. Enjoy the impressive must-see highlights like the Hermitage Museum and Winter Palace, Catherine's Palace, the Church on the Spilled Blood, and Peter and Paul's Fortress and Cathedral, as well as some more off the beaten path gems, like Pavlovsk Palace, the Faberge Museum, and the Russian Museum. Three lunches are included on this tour, each designed to give you a glimpse into local life and local cuisine. You will have time for shopping and after your visit to Pavlovsk Palace, you will experience a delightful and romantic "Troika" ride, a sled pulled by 3 horses, through the grounds and park surrounding the palace. 

This unique tour offers you the chance to experience St. Petersburg as it truly is, away from the Summer crowds. You can expect to soak in the majestic beauty with minimal or nonexistent crowds: truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for such a popular destination like St. Petersburg.
