If you have a camera or cell phone you just have to visit here. The views of the gardens are nothing short of spectacular. We were there at 10:00 when the fountains come to life. Unbelievable!

2-floor "summer" home for Peter I (he lived on the bottom floor ) and Catherine (she lived upstairs). His aim was for this to look like Venice. You be the judge (we've been to Venice and, in our opinion... not so much). Peter-party-head like to...More
