Begin your tour with a scenic drive along tree-lined Odessa streets, passing the railway station, Philharmonic Hall and Museum of Western and Oriental Art. At Primorsky Boulevard, you will leave your coach behind and commence your walking tour.

Your journey down this picturesque boulevard takes you past the famous statue of Duc De Richelieu and the famous Potemkin Steps. Other sites you will pass are the Pushkin Monument, the British Tiger Gun, captured in 1854 during the Crimean campaign and the pink-and-white colonnaded Odessa City Hall. Then it's on to view the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater, designed in the 1880s by Viennese architects Felner & Glemer in the Hapsburg Baroque style that was popular at that time.

Next, travel down Deribasovskaya Street, considered the heart of Odessa and the best place in the city to find souvenirs and local handicrafts. This charming street has retained the special Odessa atmosphere and is home to St. Peter Church and Novikov Palace. On Gogol Street, you'll find Tolstoy Palace and then its over the Mother-in-Law bridge to see the Palace of Mikhail Voronstov - the 19th century Governor-General of the Novorossia region. Heading back to the Duc de Richelieu statue, you'll find your waiting coach and transfer back to the pier. Those who wish, may stay behind and find their way back to the port using the Potemkin steps.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 1/2 hours of walking with steps to be negotiated. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. A hat and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. A restroom and refreshment stop is made after seeing the sights on Deribasovskaya Street. The order of sites visited may vary.
