Our group toured the facility, it was unbelievable and immense. We enjoyed our stay in Russia, one thing every visitor to Russia should be aware of is the street crime. My iPhone 7 plus was stolen by a pick pocket, very disconcerting. Please be aware...More

A must visit while in St. Petersburg, the rooms are amazing as well as the selection of Art. We also went to the Impressionist gallery which was extremely worthwhile.

We had a very good guide who took us through the highlights very competently despite high visitor numbers. Afterwards we returned to peruse at our leisure. What an amazing collection, not to be missed.

This palace/museum is unbelievably beautiful. Downside: mobbed with people, hard to move through, see and hear. The biggest compliment to the Russian people that they carefully restored it to its former beauty before WWII.

Sorry, I don't do weather forecasts....assume wet and cold ! I took over 400 photos and half were indoors in churches and palaces, just assume that you will not use flash.
ALL DAY at the Hermitage? Is there any shore excursion for a cruise ship passenger to spend all day at the Hermitage in St Petersburg? Two hours doesn't seem to do justice to the place! Only option I can find is to get a regular visa so I can do it independently.
