Meet your guide at the meeting point in St. Petersburg, and proceed to the Hermitage Museum to begin your small-group tour. 

Your tour covers the main buildings of the museum: the Winter Palace, Small Hermitage, Old Hermitage, New Hermitage, and General Staff Building. With your guide, see the state interiors of the Winter Palace, the most glorious czar residence in Russia, started by Empress Elizabeth I and finished under Catherine the Great's rule. Explore works of art collected by the Imperial family and carefully saved from destruction by the staff of the museum during World War II; admire the highlights of the 15th- to 18th-century European collection by masters such as Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Veronese, Tintoretto, and Tiepolo; and check out the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist collections.

Other sights include the Peacock Clock of the Small Hermitage and multiple galleries of French, Italian, and Dutch art. Throughout your tour, your guide is happy to answer any questions and, if possible, can make detours to accommodate your special requests. (Note, the Hermitage Theatre is not available for tours.)
