At once stately, imposing and awe-inspiring, Moscow is gaining popularity as a tourist destination. Nestled within its labyrinth-like byways, the Russian capital contains a wealth of hidden galleries, museums, mansions and restaurants just waiting to be discovered. Enjoy sophistication and top-quality cuisine aboard your flights to Moscow with Alitalia as you prepare to uncover the city’s mysteries.
Moscow’s most renowned attractions are as iconic as they are impressive. The first time you travel to Moscow, be sure to visit the Kremlin, a monolithic architectural marvel and the political and historical core of the city. Tread the cobbled stone paths of Red Square, one of Moscow’s most historically significant sites. While there, stand before the colorful spires of St. Basil’s Cathedral, especially striking when illuminated at night. From there, tour the State Tretyakov Gallery, which hosts a collection of archaic and avant-garde Russian artworks, or explore the fortress-like Novodevichy Convent, the final resting place of some of Russia’s most influential individuals.
Purchase your tickets to Moscow for May or June, as Russian winters can be especially harsh for urban exploration. When you arrive, head to the nearest Metro station and purchase a magnetic pass, which will give you easy access to the entire city.
