Essential Information

This tour is a less in depth visit of the Hermitage, designed for those guests who are unable to manage two hours of continuous walking, as featured on the standard Hermitage tour (LED004). Guides will walk at a slower pace, and the tour will cover only one part of the museum (the 1st floor). Guests are required to negotiate some steps during the tour. The Hermitage can become very crowded and you may be expected to queue outside inall weathers. Routes around The Hermitage are determined by museum curators; therefore we cannot guarantee which works of art will be seen on the day. Works by Impressionist painters are housed in a different building within a separate exhibition and therefore will not be included in the visit to the Hermitage. Camera and video fees are included in the tour cost. Flash photography is not permitted. There is limited opportunity for shopping at the gift shop within the museum. Russian Roubles and Credit Cards are accepted. It is forbidden to take long overcoats,large bags, umbrellas or bottles inside the museum.
