A walk through the History of Art
The Prado is one of the top10 museums in the world according to National Geographic, but the Number 1 Painting Collection according to the number of master pieces exhibited.
From the Middle Ages, through the Italian Renaissance and Spanish Baroque (Velazquez) to Goya, will get to walk through the History of Occidental Art in a very entertaining way.
It will be a trip through the history of art and the evolution of the perception of the human mind, reflected on the panels and canvases reunited in one of the most important painting collections of the world.
You don't need to be an expert, but by the end of the tour, you will feel like one!
We will meet at the museum, and from there we will go through the building in order to get to know either the different schools selected by guide or your own choice.
If there is something VERY specific you would like to be explained, please, inform ahead of time for guide to prepare the personal tour.

Susana has a ton of energy and did a fantastic job on our tour of the Prado! My wife and I got so much more out of the experience by having a knowledgeable guide explain the history and stories behind the art.
