This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Savior on the Spilled Blood, Griboyedova Kanala Emb., 2B/A, St. Petersburg 191186 Russia

Get oriented to this magnificent city in just hours, from palaces to cathedrals, with photo stops along the way. Visit Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood. This onion-domed decorative memorial to the assassinated emperor Alexander II is the personification of splendid Russian ecclesiastical architecture. Inside, too, you’ll find an ornate sanctuary adorned with richly hued mosaics.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: The Museum Complex The State Museum St. Isaac’s Cathedral, Isaakiyevskaya Sq., 4 Nevskiy Prospekt metro station, St. Petersburg 190000 Russia

The cathedral's central gold dome is one of the largest in the world, and covered with 220 pounds of gold. It was commissioned by Alexander I in 1818 and took more than three decades to complete.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Park And Gardens of Peterhof, Razvodnaya st., 2, Peterhof, St. Petersburg Russia

After a short lunch break jump on a public fast-speed boat (hydrofoil) and venture outside St Petersburg to Peterhof, Peter the Great’s extravagant residence. You’ll walk through the Lower Park and start browsing the spectacular gardens. Delight at the lavish fountains, designed by Peter the Great himself. The most spectacular—the breathtaking Grand Cascade—is in the lower gardens. It depicts Samson prying open a lion’s jaws as water jettisons in the air around him and pools cascade down the terraced steps from the palace behind. You will travel back to St Petersburg city center by fast-speed boat (hydrofoil) again. The tour will be over near the Hermitage Museum.

Duration: 2 hours
