I did the tour with Pollina/Pauline. It was WONDERFUL. She is such a charismatic guide. She knows and appreciates the palace deeply and she really conveyed that to me. Also there were way less people in this palace than in the Hermitage, so I got to absorb the exhibits, ambiance and story more fully and at ease. I highly recommend this tour.
