Explore one of the greatest museums in the world on a 3-hour tour of the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg’s Winter Palace. A private guide will introduce you to masterpieces by Titian, Rembrandt, Da Vinci, and more.
What to Expect
Explore one of the largest museums in the world on a 3-hour private guided tour of the Hermitage Museum in central St. Petersburg. Wander through the magnificent staterooms of the Winter Palace, and see famous paintings by Da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Rembrandt and more.
The museum consists of 5 historic buildings, including the former residence of Russian Tsars at the Winter Palace. You will visit 4 of these buildings during your visit, including the Winter Palace and Small Hermitage, Old Hermitage and New Hermitage. To view the collection in its entirety, assuming you spent 8 hours a day and just 1 minute to examine each exhibit, would take almost 15 years.
But your private guide will take you direct to some of the highlights, providing a fascinating commentary as they lead you through some of the most impressive staterooms. With more than 3 million pieces, ranging from antiquity to the present day, there’s plenty to suit all tastes, and at the end of your guided tour, you are free to continue exploring on your own.
