Be inspired by one of the most famous art museums in the world! See the best of Hermitage collection within 2.5 hours.
The Hermitage is one of the most famous museums in the world. Spread over several buildings lining the Neva River in St. Petersburg, this museum is way too large to see in just a few hours. The museum was founded in 1764 when Empress Catherine the Great purchased a collection of 255 paintings from the German city of Berlin.
Today the Hermitage boasts over 2.7 million exhibits and displays a diverse range of art and artifacts from all over the world. On our Hermitage Tour we’ll see the main ceremonial halls & works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian, a unique collection of Rembrandt and Rubens and several sculptures by Rodin. The experts say that if you were to spend a minute looking at each exhibit on display in the Hermitage, you would need 11 years before you’d seen them all. We’ll do the best of Hermitage within 3 hours!
