No visit to Madrid would be complete without a visit to the Prado Museum, which is considered one of the top museums in the world. With over 1,300 works of art on display and a collection of 8,600 paintings and over 700 sculptures, the Prado has one of the largest and most impressive collections in the world. It would take days to see the museum’s entire collection that is on display.
On this 3 hour private tour will be met at your hotel by your guide, and together you will travel to the museum. On your way to the museum your guide will begin to tell you about the history and background of the Prado. When you arrive at the museum you will bypass the general entry line and enter through the special access entrance that is reserved for licensed guides.
Your guide will ensure that you do not miss any of the most important works of art included in the museum, such as Las Meninas by Velázquez, The Nobleman with his Hand on his Chest by El Greco, or The Cardinal by Raphael, to name a few. The tour of the highlights of the museum takes about 90-120 minutes.
The visit can be completely customized to focus on the type of art you are interested in, whether it be by specific artist, school (e.g. Spanish, Flemish and Dutch, Italian, German, etc.), century, or type (e.g. painting, sculpture, print, etc.).
