Itinerary changes

  • If you take the tour during the low season, from November to April, the boat trip on the Neva River (day 2) will be replaced by a visit to the Fabergé Museum. In addition, instead of touring the Peterhof Gardens (day 2), we will visit the Grand Peterhof Palace.
  • However, the dates considered as low season may vary according to the calendar of sailing the St. Petersburg canals and the opening of the fountains in Peterhof. In 2019, the fountains will be opened on April 27th, so from that day onwards it will be possible to visit the Peterhof Gardens. 
  • The Hermitage Museum is closed on Mondays. In the case that your reservation begins on a Monday, the itinerary will be adapted to include the museum visit on the second day.
  • The order of the itinerary may change depending on schedules or closures of the monuments visited.
