Suggestions please

Hi,

Just realised our agent has booked flights for us to leave St Petersburg at 5.30 in the morning.

We would need to be at the airport by 2.30am, and I have been told due to it being June 2014 all the bridges will be up.

Can someone please advise the latest time that we could leave for the airport (before the bridges go up).

We have paid for accommodation in St Petersburg that night and don't want to spend hours waiting for our flight.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Where are you staying? Depending on where you are there might not be a need to cross one of the main bridges across the Neva.

Or him.

:)

Seriously though, which hotel are you staying at? As the others have said, it may not be a problem - apart from needing a very early start!

Thank you for your help.

I have now been told that our hotel is in an area where we do not need to cross the bridges.

We can now have more time in St Petersburg before leaving for the airport.

Thank you all again.

It is also too early to be 3 hours before departure. 2 hours will surely be sufficient.
