The Hermitage is so vast it would take a lifetime to experience all of its treasures. Occupying more than 1,000 rooms and halls, The Hermitage collection includes pieces from every historical period. Built during the reigns of Elizabeth and Catherine the Great, the grandiose, baroque ‘Winter Palace’ and its 4 adjacent buildings house works such as those of Da Vinci, Raphael, Titian and Van Dyke, among others. Just as dazzling are the patterned parquet floors, ornate staircases, moulded and painted ceilings, gilded furniture and decorative malachite of the Palace itself. Walk through a selection of the display rooms with your guide, who will relate fascinating facts about the Museum’s history, art and architecture. Routes around the Hermitage are determined by museum curators therefore we cannot guarantee which works of art will be seen on the day.
Your drive to the Hermitage will take you through a portion of the city of St Petersburg where you’ll see the Neva River Embankment, Saint Isaac’s Cathedral, Admiralty and Peter-and-Paul Fortress.
