ITINERARY

Welcome to St. Petersburg
Imposing, stately, magnificent - St. Petersburg extends a warm welcome for a festive sojourn that will see you visit two imperial cities cloaked in a magical winter blanket. Meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception and light dinner at your hotel before an enchanting introduction of the city during an orientation drive.

Discover Historic St. Petersburg
Admire Peter the Great's inspiring vision that culminated in the creation of a majestic city to rival Europe's most magnificent capitals. Join your Local Specialist on a sightseeing tour that will take you past the Tsar's regal Winter Palace, St. Isaac's Cathedral and the grand avenue of Nevsky Prospekt. Included is a visit to the 18th-century Peter and Paul Fortress. Later, Connect With Locals and meet the students of St. Petersburg's Theatre for canapés and a stage performance.

Explore the Spectacular Hermitage Museum
Catherine the Great's cherished collection of art takes centre stage today as we Dive Into Culture and enjoy a Small Group Sightseeing visit to the Hermitage Museum with a Local Specialist. Navigate the spectacular corridors that house one of the world's largest and most valuable art collections representing the development of world culture and art from the Stone Age to the 20th century. Spend the rest of your day exploring the grand boulevards, golden spires and regal façades of this great city. Why not end your St. Petersburg visit in a colourful whirl of traditional dance at a Russian folklore show?

Journey By High-Speed Train to Moscow
Tuck into hearty breakfast of Russian fare before embarking on a high-speed train to Moscow, passing a wintery landscape of soaring church spires and small villages. The Russian capital wears its extraordinary triumphs and tumultuous history on its sleeve and we have an opportunity to explore both over the next few days. Follow the imposing red walls of the Kremlin and the chilly banks of the Moskva River on this exploration of Russia's political, economic, religious and financial hub.

Enjoy Moscow's Stunning Christmas Markets
An enchanting winter wonderland awaits as we admire the more than 400 dazzling light installations that illuminate the city for its annual Christmas Light festival. Stroll through city squares that come alive with Christmas market stalls. Smells of mulled wine, gingerbread and caviar-filled crepes fill the air while stalls spill over with an astounding array of handcrafted gifts. Join a Local Specialist on a sightseeing tour to see the vibrant façade of St. Basil's Cathedral and visit the Kremlin. There's plenty of time later to stock up on festive souvenirs and explore one of the world's grandest cities on your own terms.

Moscow Your Way
Moscow's fascinating history and culture are yours to explore today. Spend your full day at leisure discovering the victories and tragedies that have shaped this magnificent city, from the elegant frescoed metro stations to the sad graveyard of Fallen Monuments. Consider visiting one of the city's museums or join an Optional Experience to Sergiyev Posad, the largest religious and cultural centre in Russia. Our journey together is almost at its end as we join our travel companions for a Farewell Dinner.
