I am working on developing a two day itinerary for a group tour in SPB this August. We are trying to avoid rushing from site to site, and concentrating on enjoying what we want to see.
Does the following seem logical, feasible, and worthwhile? Are we missing something nearby that is of value?
We will be using SPbTours or similar, so we will be able to bypass ticket lines and entrance queues.
Day One (Friday)
10:30 - 14:30 Peterhof Palace and grounds (lunch on site)
15:00 - 17:00 Walk and shop on Nevsky Prospect
17:00 - 18:00 Church of the Spilled Blood
Return to ship
Day Two (Saturday)
9:30 - 13:30 Hermitage Museum (lunch on site)
14:00 - 17:00 Botanical Garden of SPB (greenhouses only open on Saturday)
Return to Ship
We would also welcome suggestions for Friday evening.
I look forward to your suggestions and comments.
