We decided last minute so wasn't able to book a guide. Use the ticket machine to purchase general tickets (700 rubbles) if you don't want tickets to see the special room. The counter to get tickets was a long wait.
We enjoyed walking around to admire the beauty.

Love the classic art and the palace quarters. We hired a private guide to give us a tour. It is a most as they know the ins and outs and they make the best use of your time. We spent three hours but you can surely stay there for days!

This place is massive. Unfortunately, I did not have time to visit the interior of the State Hermitage Museum. I was only in town for a couple of days during the WC so time was a commodity.

This place is huge and has so much to see. I recommend getting a private guide and telling them things that you are interested in seeing before you enter. Highlights for us were the animated clock, the stonework, the artwork and paintings and the silver. We only had 4 hours here but could have spent another day at least to see as much as we wanted. It is a must see!!
