Day 1

St Petersburg

Welcome to St Petersburg! Arrival transfer from St Petersburg Pulkovo airport to our hotel. Buzzing with cafes, bars and restaurants, St Pete's is renowned for its fine Baltika beer and unashamedly good vodka. Perhaps get your trip off to a celebratory start!
Overnight: St Petersburg

Day 2

St Petersburg city tour

St Petersburg is designed around a series of canals and rivers. Bereft of the Soviet breezeblock style architecture that characterises so many of Russia's cities, the city is jam-packed with grandiose palaces and stately buildings. The world-famous Hermitage art collection at the Winter Palace remains St Pete's top culture-vulture attraction. The palaces and stately homes of the aristocratic tsars, Tsarskoe Selo and Peterhof are also worth seeking out. Enjoy a guided coach tour of the city's key sites, remainder of the day at leisure.
Overnight: St Petersburg  |  Breakfast

Day 3

Free time to explore

St Petersburg - Moscow. Free day to explore the city and surrounds. Most of the inner city sights are located on and just off the main thoroughfare Nevsky Prospekt, that stretches for around 4 km from near the Winter Palace Embankment to Alexander Nevsky Monastery, so St Pete's is a great city to walk around. Tonight - an included transfer to the rail station for overnight train to Moscow.
Overnight: Sleeper Train  |  Breakfast
