    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your central St Petersburg hotel and start your walking tour with a 30-minute stroll to the State Hermitage Museum. 

    On route, pass some of Moscow’s historical landmarks, including Kazan Cathedral, the baroque façade of the Anichkov Palace, and the imposing, 19th-century Admiralty building, one of the city’s most conspicuous sights.

    On arrival at the Hermitage, admire the magnificent exterior and, as a curtain-raiser, hear how the museum — housed in the Winter Palace — boasts one of the world’s largest collection of art. Learn how Catherine the Great established the museum in 1764, and how the Winter Palace building was once the residence of many of Russia’s Tsars.

    Head inside for a 2-hour guided tour of the galleries’ highlights. Follow your guide around the opulent halls to see Impressionist works by Matisse, masterpieces by Flemish artists such as Rubens, Rembrandt and Van Dyck; and Renaissance treasures by Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Take a stroll, too, around the Spanish section to view pieces by Goya, Velázquez and El Greco.

    After admiring the art, your tour ends inside the museum. Bid farewell to your guide and leave at the same time, or continue to explore more of the Hermitage Museum on your own.
