Peterhof, the magnificent residence of Peter the Great, lies in the flat, forested countryside outside of St. Petersburg. It features a commanding view of the sea down a Marine Canal that allowed the tsars to sail between Peterhof and the Gulf of Finland.

Inside the main palace, you will see a wealth of spectacular sights, such as the intricately gold-gilded main staircase, the opulent Throne Room adorned with royal portraits, a fabulous exhibit of Russian porcelain, the royal bedchamber, furnished with a huge Turkish sofa from Catherine the Great, and Peter's oak study, which has survived unaltered from the original design. Lavish period furniture, chandeliers and paintings are throughout the residence.

Following your interior tour of the palace, a guide will escort you through the gorgeous Peterhof Gardens, which features both French and English influences, and is punctuated with ornamental ponds and cascading fountains. Afterwards, you will re-board your coach and make the drive back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate to strenuous walking that includes negotiating steps as well as gravel and cobblestone surfaces. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns who are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Layered clothing; an umbrella; sun cap; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Photos and video are prohibited within the palace. The fountains in the lower garden are subject to maintenance without prior notice.
