St. Petersburg's seasons are well suited to romantic things to do, with cold winter nights good for cozying and long summer days good for loafing around together. If you're in an active mood, visit Gatchinskii Dvorets, a Medieval-looking palace that was once the private apartments of Alexander III and his family. Or, to visit the magnificent summer residence of the tsars, take a comfortable chauffeured drive to the town of Pushkin, where you will find a jewel of Russian baroque style: the Catherine Palace, which houses a recreation of the famous - and mysteriously vanished - Amber Room. The Private Grand Tour of St. Petersburg offers the opportunity to take in as much as possible of the city in a day on a complete tour of the city's most famous sites. Mramornyi Dvorets has an intriguing history: it was one of many gifts bestowed by Catherine the Great on her longtime lover, Grigory Orlov. But make a little history of your own as you enjoy St. Petersburg's many romantic things to do.
