You need to be with a guide or apply for a visa to tour on your own. Our first day was the Peter & Paul fortress. This is were the Romanoff family have their tombs inside the church there. Our guide was young and she spoke perfect English. On the way there and back, she announced points of interest. Lots to see and to take pictures of. Lovely vibrant city and very clean.

Beautiful fortress. It was built for protection by Peter the Great in case of an attack by the Swedes. Many of the Russian tsars are buried here.

We seemed to hit lucky here and avoided too many crowds. Again the stunning buildings are at their best when described by an excellent informative guide

We did the 2 day Treasure Tour and Faberge Museum with SPB tours. They are a A-1 Class operation. Beautiful buses, excellent guides, efficient, prompt and they covered all the must sees in a smaller group setting.

Had a private performance from some musicians from the church. It was amazing but a bit spoiled when we immediately got the hard sell to buy CDs as soon as they finished singing. Also the rain was quite bad so we didn't linger in the Fortress.
