We only had one day in St Petersburg, too. We hired a guide: Dasha from the Tour by locals who took us, with the driver Irina, to the main points of interest in St Petersburg as we visit Hermitage with its main attractions, Faberge museum, we went in the 3 main churches and we still had time for typical lunch and souvenirs.
