After the steps of the Royal Family of Spain

During this tour we'll get to know the main facts of the Spanish Royal Family. The Prado Museum is actually their family photo album, and in a very entertaining way we will get to learn about the main royal dynasties that have ruled the destinies of Spain. Without forgetting the artistic point of view, after all, a great part of the collection was theirs until the 19th century, and mirrors their likings and preferences, thus their personality. After that we will move to the other side of the Old City in order to get to know in person their last residence, until the year 1931, the royal apartments at the Royal Palace, a fantastic experience which will complete all the knowledge acquired in the Prado Museum. Maximum 7 participants.
