As you wander amid the opulence, listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about the extravagance of Tsar Peter the Great, for whom the estate was built.Check out more fountains in the French-esque Upper Garden, and search for the trick fountains that surprise the unsuspecting.  When your tour ends, finish your day trip with a drop-off back at your St Petersburg hotel
