OMG!! The reason we took this cruise was because of the 2 days in SPB. We were simply awestruck! On our first day, we took a ride through the city to familiarize ourselves with some of the venues (with stops along the way for photos). We were then treated to a canal tour of SPB by boat.
During our 2 days, we toured the Catherine Palace, Hermitage (Winter Palace), Peterhof, Peter & Paul Fortress, Yusupov Palace, St. Isaac's Cathedral, and the Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood. We also visited the farmer's market, took a subway ride, did a little shopping and took a hydrofoil ride out to Peterhof (which is located on the gulf of Finland).
