    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Housed in an 18th century neoclassical building, the Prado Museum displays thousands of works from its vast collection, spanning the 1200s to the 1900s. Some of the stand-out pieces include “Las Meninas” (The Maids of Honor), an inventive self-portrait by Spanish-born Velázquez, and “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” a triptych from Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch. You’ll wander its hall as your expert guided reveals the stories and secrets behind works by Goya, Fra Angelico, El Greco, Rembrandt, and others. Explore the largest collection of Italian masterpieces outside of Italy in addition to a fine selection of prints and sculptures. Whatever you do, don’t leave Madrid without experiencing all of the entrancing works that the Prado has to offer.

Oct. 2019
We have visited many museams but this was the best experience we have had. Jamie was incredibly knowledgable and engaging which made for an excelent experience. Unlike most museam tours we were able to have front row views of all the great art housed at the Prado Museum. Thanks Jamie!!

Our guide Ana was wonderful. She taught as much about art in our 3 hour tour. We got more out of it than if we had just gone ourselves and used an audio tour. Highly recommend if you are interested in art.

Experienced all the Prado has to offer
We hit every high note at the Prado and received a passionate, rich, detailed history of all major featured artists and works. Ana Llorente, our guide, holds a PhD in art history and was born and raised here in Madrid. Her expertise not only taught us about the most famous paintings, but we also learned the details of the different periods and painting styles. Ana was able to share with us what the artists were thinking and feeling during their time. This tour is a way to fall in love with some of the most famous works in history by Bosch, Velasquez, Goya, El Greco and more...

Logistics/ease of the tour: I received emails with detailed instructions on where to meet and when. The night before our tour, Babylon contacted me with the name and number of our guide. The day of the tour, Ana communicated directly with me and made sure we were ready and able to find her. Tickets in hand, we passed right through - so easy!!!

In case it is not evident, this is the way to tour the Prado - enjoy!
