New Collette Tour Puts Spotlight on ‘Imperial Russia’

Collette’s new ‘Imperial Russia’ tour is now on sale.

The tour allows history and culture aficionados to experience everything Russia has to offer over eight days, in two of the world’s most dynamic cities – Moscow and St Petersburg.

Travellers will get to take their time and dive deep into the complex, rich history and culture of these destinations. Beginning at the heart of Moscow, the Kremlin and the Red Square (UNESCO world heritage sites), guests will indulge in Russia’s traditional food and culture scene with a local guide.

The journey then continues as travellers arrive in St Petersburg to experience what is known as the “Venice of the North” and Russia’s Imperial capital. Home to traditional Georgian cuisine, the famous St Isaac’s Cathedral and Palace Square, St Petersburg is a city that exudes grandeur and majesty.

“We are very excited to begin taking travellers to Russia, a bucket list for many,” said Diana Ditto, director of product design. “Anyone with a passion for vintage cars will be blown away by the chance to drive around in vintage Volgas, Nivas, Rivas and Ladas – in true Soviet-era style. This is the only way to see St Petersburg.”

In addition to driving vintage cars, travellers will take the famous Russian metro to get to all the major sites. As one of the most efficient transit systems in the world, it offers pleasant surprises and stunning views of Russia’s famous architecture that many travellers would otherwise miss.
