About The Picasso Experience Tour:
The Picasso Experience is a combined museum entry/walking tour that aims to bring Picasso’s legend and legacy to life. You will be transported back to the artist's formative years, a time spent in the art schools, cafes and studios of 19-20th century Barcelona. Discover early masterpieces, walk in the footsteps of one of history's most influential artists, and get an intimate feel for the old town of Barcelona.
With many claiming to offer the best Pablo Picasso tour there is, here is what makes The Picasso Experience unique.
Knowledgeable Tour Guides:
In the company of a knowledgeable local tour guide you will be told everything there is to know about the artworks and life of Picasso. Visit El Quatre Gats cafe, one of Picasso's regular haunts; and cross paths with the Llotja Mar, an art school where he developed his iconic style, as well as the College of Catalan Architects, where you can find three open-air friezes based on original sketches.
Experience The Old Town Of Barcelona:
The tour takes you through the narrow streets of Old Town Barcelona where Pablo spent his early days. Here you will hear about Picasso not just as a fledgling artist, but as a typical young man in early 20th century Barcelona. Surrounded by some of the city's richest architecture, you don’t even have to be an art lover or Cubism enthusiast to enjoy this section of the tour.
Skip-The-Line Museum Access:
After a stroll through the picturesque streets of La Ribera you will eventually arrive at the Picasso Museum. As one of the most visited tourist destinations in Barcelona you can normally expect long queues and even longer waiting times. Not with The Picasso Experience. Skip the line with your tour guide and enjoy fascinating insights into highlight works. Once the museum portion of the tour is over you'll be left with free time to explore the museum at your own pace.
See How Picasso's Art Evolved:
The Picasso Museum is set up so that you can see how Picasso’s style and art evolved over time. This will help you to better understand Picasso’s life experiences and how they influenced his art.
