The White Nights Festival in St Petersburg that runs from May to July each year is a riot of music, theatre, fireworks and carnivals. Held amid the half-light of the Midnight Sun, it draws international stars of ballet and opera to such illustrious venues as the Mariinsky Concert Hall and the vast and impressive Palace Square. And, of course, there's never a bad time to see the world-famous Hermitage Museum or Moscow's Red Square and the iconic domes of Saint Basil's Cathedral.

We've designed this tour to get the most from these Russian giants, but we can tailor any element to suit your tastes and interests.
