“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

The Hermitage was amazing. It is hard to decide what is more impressive, the palace itself or the art collection inside. I would recommend doing some research before you go, I wished I had done so.

“Incredible collection.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Very difficult to navigate and crowded. The Matisse rooms are fabulous. Decent English audio guide. Could take two days if you really want to see everything.
