St. Petersburg, the home of the Hermitage, is at its most beautiful and poetic during the “White Nights” that follow the summer solstice. Join us for an exclusive aesthetic experience as we guide you to the city’s famous sites and hidden gems. Our White Nights Tour is your chance to discover Russia’s Imperial capital — with its rich heritage of palaces, museums, theaters, cathedrals and other cultural landmarks. Over six days you will have exclusive access and experiences, including curator-led tours, private excursions by boat and horse-drawn carriage, behind-the-scenes visits, great restaurants and more.

An optional component of the trip, always a highlight, is the Hermitage Gala Banquet, a unique and luxurious evening of dinner and entertainment in the magnificent halls of the Winter Palace, where you will get to see the museum no longer as a museum, but as the palace it always was. Additional options include an excursion to the world-famous Mariinsky Theater, for a night of ballet or opera, and an extra day on July 1st, with a choice of additional experiences and visits.
