    The tour of this grand imperial city will start from the Palace Square, which is dominated by the Winter Palace.
    After crossing the Neva River stop at the Spit of St Basil Island. From the Spit enjoy panoramic views of the Palace Embankment with its renowned Hermitage Museum, and many prominent St Petersburg landmarks including St Isaac's Cathedral, the Admiralty, and the Chamber of Curiosities. 
    Pay a visit to the Peter and Paul Fortress, the oldest structure in the city, and the site where the town of Peter started in 1703. The cathedral located here became the burial place of the Russian emperors, and members of their families, from Peter the Great onwards.

    Pass the Summer Gardens and the Field of Mars on the way to the Church of The Savior on Spilled Blood. The church was built on the spot where the Russian emperor Alexander II was assassinated in 1881.
    Continue along Nevsky Prospect, the city's busiest street, and home to restaurants, theatres, museums and splendid palaces of the ex-Russian aristocracy. Pass the Stroganoff Palace where the famous beef stroganoff dish was invented. Stop for lunch in a Russian fast food place. Why not try a traditional dish like borsch (soup), blinis (pancakes), or beef stroganoff? 
    After lunch, continue towards St Isaac's Square to see its beautiful cathedral. St Isaac's Cathedral is a great example of late period classical architecture, and is richly decorated with sculptures, high relieves, oil paintings and mosaics. 
    The tour ends at the cathedral. Be sure to stay on to take a look inside or perhaps to climb the spiral staircase to the top of St Isaac's dome to enjoy a breathtaking view of the city.
