Catherine Palace Tour
45 USD pp
|10.00 am||Meeting in the lobby of your hotel with your guide and driver|
|11.00 am-12.30 pm||The Catherine Palace Tour. The abundance of golden decorations is one of the most striking features of the palace interiors. Crystal gilded chandeliers, priceless parquet floors, multiple mirrors, blue colored delft tile stoves, bright silk on the walls – all that will leave you breathless and charmed. The most well-known room in the palace is the Amber Room. It looks like a large jewel-box all covered with amber panels and decorated with mosaics. Its history is very intriguing: while the Room was fully restored in the 21 century, still many people are trying to discover the original one.|
|12.30 pm – 1.00 pm||Guided tour of the Catherine garden. After you finish your tour inside the palace you will get a chance to see the picturesque garden. Walking down the terraces you will admire the Cold Bath Pavilion and Cameron gallery that provides a beautiful panoramic view of the surroundings. However, the best view awaits at the Great Pond that unites small pavilions around. A relaxing stroll in the garden enveloped in lush greenery will be a perfect ending of the tour.|
|2.00 pm||Back to your hotel or any other place in the city center|
