About St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

Peter the Great styled this to be his Venice of the North. Italian architects created baroque facades, the match of any, to line the banks of the Neva River. Long, arched bridges join the city's halves. You'll want to see the spires of the Saints Peter and Paul Fortress, the blue domes of the Ouspensky Cathedral and, of course, some of the million masterworks of art contained in the Hermitage galleries of the Winter Palace.

Russian visas are expensive and take a real effort to acquire--highly recommend a packaged tour.

We used Insider Tours both days and had a great time. Less expensive than Norwegian's cost and very personal. Valentina's command of English is great and her knowledge, wonderful.

One of the most beautiful cities. Too much to see and do in 2days. The ballet and Hermitage are musts. This whetted our appetite enough that we would recommend a four days or more stay on any trip. The local people are sort of cold to westerners away from the tours.

We did a two day private tour - absolutely recommend taking the time to research tours....the private tour was definitely worth it - got in to all the sites quicker - no waiting in lines, no buses - heaven!
