Picasso Walking Tour of Barcelona

YOUR PRIVATE PICASSO TOUR

The Picasso nobody told you about

Are you a Picasso fan? Have you already been to the Picasso Museum of Barcelona (or any other Picasso museum in the world!) and want to get a deeper understanding of his works? Want to see Barcelona from the eyes of a young Picasso?

The Picasso Museum of Barcelona is not what most visitors expect. You pay your ticket to see funky cubist paintings… and you are given figurative art instead! And since the big flaw of the museum is the lack of information inside, I’ve heard many people complain the visit was a waste. And makes me so sad! Because I find it so fascinating: there is a story behind every painting.

This is why having a private guide to show you around the Picasso Museum is one of the best investments you can make in your trip (if you are into art, I mean). Some of our Barcelona tours take you there, but if you want to go deeper into Picasso’s youth and his relationship with Barcelona, so you can see his Art under a totally new light, this tour will take you to the Barcelona Picasso knew.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS PICASSO TOUR:

4 CATS CAFÉ (Where the legend starts)   |   URBAN ART (By Picasso, of  course)
OLD BARCELONA ALLEYS (Where Picasso hung out)   |   PICASSO MUSEUM (Inside)

“Miriam has been our guide on several tours for the last three years. Her knowledge of art and art history is second to none. I now know more about Picasso than a college semester course would offer, but in far less time. My appreciation for Barcelona grows with every visit.”

WE TAILOR OUR PICASSO TOURS TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS

This Picasso walking tour is designed for  adults able to walk with a special interest in Picasso, that are happy to spend 4 hours discovering the world of Picasso in Barcelona. This is also a great choice for art students groups.

If you want to visit the Museu Picasso, but not spend 4 hours hearing about Picasso, book one of our Barcelona tours that take you to the Picasso Museum, or or add one extra hour to any other tour of your choice.

If budget is an issue or time is short, consider a private 1.5 hour tour of the Picasso Museum, instead.

If you are traveling with kids, this tour might be not exciting enough for them. If you want your kids to visit the Picasso Museum, we suggest you book a tour of the Old Town (that already takes you there), or add one extra hour to any other tour of your choice.

If you have walking issues, bear in mind that this is a 100% walking tour that takes place in pedestrian streets and having a driver is not an option.

If you are on a wheelchair, this tour is accessible.

If you love art and would love a longer tour, add a couple of hours so we can also take you to the Miró Foundation.
