I'm glad I was able to take the walking tour of St Petersburg. I feel like I got much more of a feel for the central city from taking the walking tour than I ever would have from being on a bus. I loved walking on the large plaza adjacent to the Hermitage, seeing the Eliseevsky Emporium (although would have liked a bit more time there to shop) and also the plaza adjacent to that. Actually the entire walking tour was a pleasure.
