One of the tour's top spots is a visit to the renowned Hermitage Museum. St. Petersburg, known as the "Venice of the North," houses many of its exquisite pieces of artwork in the museum. Your guided tour of the museum will take you through myriad exhibits, with some dedicated to the Winter Palace, and others full of Rembrant's and Ruben's.

You'll enjoy a traditional Russian lunch, then you'll embark on a boat tour of the illustrious city.
