The best way to visit Peterhof is to take a hydrofoil across the Gulf of Finland to the jetty at the end of the Marine Canal. The pier we used was in front of the Hermitage palace entrance at the river side. The palace is beautiful but the biggest attractions are the gardens and the fountains. The best time to visit Peterhof is of course the summer season, when all the varied buildings in the park are open to visitors and the famous fountains are in operation. We were lucky to find golf cart tour service that we used in order to get a better appreciation of all the area and attractions. The downside of the tour it was that was in Russian. Nevertheless, we saved time and planned our visit in detailed after the overview tour.
