Prado Museum Guided Tour

The Prado Museum houses 7,000 paintings and 1,000 sculptures and has three floors and multiple rooms full of art.

So, it is confusing for tourists to explore the vast expanse of art at the Prado Museum by themselves.

For this very reason, visitors find it easier to take a guided tour of the museum.  

There are many benefits to taking the guided tour of the Prado Museum:

  • With a professional, certified guide, you can easily navigate the best pieces of the Prado Museum, like Rubens, Titian’s, and Velázquez’s masterpieces.
  • You also get to know the hidden stories behind each masterpiece, their history, and their artist, something that the other visitors will be missing.
  • You can get all your questions answered while exploring the museum and return to the places you find interesting after completing the tour.
