St. Petersburg Weekend Break

St. Petersburg weekend breakThe tour offered below has proved ideal for a St. Petersburg weekend break, when the visitors have a couple of days and would like to combine guided tours with exploring on your own.

The second day is completely free for whatever you’d like to do – browse the streets, shop, enjoy the food, relax in the spa or explore the Hermitage. We’ll be happy to arrange arrival and departure transfers upon your request.


During the guided tour day you will see the most famous architectural and cultural landmarks of St. Petersburg and have inside visits to:

  • one former royal palace (the Catherine Palace and Amber room)
  • one nobleman’s nest (the Yussoupov Palace)
  • the first building of St. Petersburg – Peter and Paul Fortress, and the burial vault of the Royal family

Take advantage of the guided tour and find out what choices St. Petersburg offers for touring, lunch and dining, entertainment and pastimes. The other advantage of St. Petersburg weekend break program is that it includes two museums regarded as the most difficult to get in without a pre-arranged guided visit.
