Catherine Palace and Peterhof Gardens Tour is a full day tour for cruise and land travelers. The tour starts with a port or hotel pickup. You will see two main royal residences of Russia – Catherine Palace and Gardens with the Amber Room and Peterhof Palace and Fountains. The Tour lasts for 7 hours.
The sequence of the places to visit depends on the admission time to each palace. We may start with the Catherine Palace or with the Peterhof Gardens but admission to both residences is guaranteed.
The majestic Catherine Palace and Park were one of the most beautiful summer residences of the Russian Tzar’s family. During the tour of the Palace, you will walk through the majestic gallery of the state halls where balls, receptions and gala dinners took place.
In the Palace, you will visit the famous Amber Room (“the Eighth Wonder of the World”). After the Palace tour, you can have a walk in the beautiful Catherine Park.
Peterhof was the former summer residence of Peter the Great. It is world-known for the picturesque Lower Gardens with spectacular fountains, the Grand Palace and numerous smaller Palaces and pavilions representing “Russian Versailles”. The most impressing fact about Peterhof Gardens is that they are not run artificially. The pressure from the ground is natural and not supported by engines. In the palace you can see the legendary Oak Library which belonged to Peter the Great.
Please note, in summer we visit the Peterhof gardens on this tour and in winter we visit the Peterhof Palace. If you want to visit Peterhof for a longer period, please book Red Sun Tours Peterhof Tour.
Important! The Catherine Palace and Peterhof Gardens Tour is available all year around! In winter you visit the Peterhof Palace instead of the Gardens.
