What you can expect

Explore the magnificent Hermitage Museum, one of the most important sights in St Petersburg. Skip long lines and follow your guide on a tour of the Hermitage, located in the Winter Palace—the former residence of the Russian tsars—and adjacent buildings overlooking the Neva River.

Follow your expert guide through Russia's biggest museum, founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and growing richer over centuries as tsars purchased art collections abroad. Marvel at the museum's collection of more than 3 million masterpieces and invaluable sculptures, crystal, porcelain, carpets, jewellery, engravings, antiques from the classical era, modern art, weapons, coins and rare books.

Get a glimpse of famous Italian, Flemish, French and Spanish pictorial art. The Hermitage is particularly known for paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Rembrandt, as well as Impressionists such as Gauguin, Matisse and Van Gogh, and modern art by Picasso. Its sumptuous interiors, decorated by works of talented artists, are a marvellous frame for this unique collection.
