Day Tour of Saint Petersburg's Palaces with private guide and driver

  • City : St. Petersburg
  • Season : All seasons
  • Duration : 8 h

You will take part in a day trip exploring the celebrated and sumptuous palaces of St-Petersburg. To begin with, you will walk along the beautiful tree-lined avenues of the Pavlovsk Palace, located south of the Capital of the North. Catherine II offered this magnificent palace to her only son Paul I in 1786, who made it his summer residence. Built in a Palladian style and inspired by Roman temples with white columns, the Pavlovsk Palace houses majestic buildings in pastel yellow tones. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pavlovsk is renowned for the splendor of its interiors, which are home to many 18th century pieces of furniture, sculptures, and paintings, and is also known for the beauty of its English-style park.

Then you will continue your cultural tour by traveling to the town of "Tsarskoye Selo" (“The Imperial Village”), which was founded in the eighteenth century to host the summer residence of the czars. Renamed "Pushkin" after the Revolution, it houses the splendid Catherine Palace, built by Rastrelli on the order of Elizabeth I, and the Alexander Palace built by Catherine II on the occasion of the marriage of his grandson, the future Alexander I. We will appreciate the beauty of buildings, interiors and gardens. The Alexander Palace is currently in restoration, the visit of its interiors is not possible.
