Full description
Be immersed in some of the world's finest works of art, from classic to modern on this private tour of the Prado and Reina Sofía museums. Your professional guide will take you through both museums where you will learn how and why these talented masters created their art.

Prado, you will learn about the museum’s history as you walk around admiring the artwork. The Prado Museum is Madrid’s top cultural sight, and one of the world’s greatest art galleries. Its dazzling display of works by the great European masters such as Velázquez, Goya, Raphael, Rubens, and Bosch (among other major Italian and Flemish artists), is housed in an 18th-century Neo-Classical building that opened as a museum in 1819. Its name derives from the district where it is located, formerly an area of market gardens known as the “prado” or meadow.

At Madrid’s Reina Sofía Museum, admire the work from some of Spain’s finest 20th-century artists, including Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. This museum is housed in an elegant old hospital building, and its vaulted hallways are the ideal place to discover many of Spain’s finest artists and sculptors. Your guide will explain some of 20th-century Spanish art, from abstractionism to cubism, surrealism to modernism. Today, Reina Sofía Museum holds a large number of works.
