Important InfoInfo
Meet your guide in central Barcelona and start your 2-hour walking tour of the sites associated with Pablo Picasso.

As you walk, listen as your guide explains how artistically minded Barcelona had a profound effect on the young 20th-century artist who lived here for times between 1895 and 1905.

Stroll through the bohemian streets Picasso frequented and view the El Quatre Gats, a café where he met with other avant-garde artists. See the Llotja Mar art school where he studied, and admire the three friezes at the Frisos del Col legi d'Arquitectes — his only open-air artworks.

Continue past other locations important to the youthful artist, including places where he painted, and amble through the charming La Ribera quarter on route to the Picasso Museum.

The museum houses one of the world’s biggest Picasso collections, so lines to enter are generally quite long. With your guide, use your skip-the-line ticket to bypass the queues, and head inside to view some of the over 4,000 works.

Stroll around and get insightful commentary from your guide on the main highlights, most of them completed in Picasso’s early life.

Your tour ends at the museum, leaving you free to depart or stay on inside.

Fabulous! The group was small (9), and the guide was extremely knowledgeable. We walked thorough the town and learned about Picasso´s life, then the museum was made even more understandable. I recommend it for art lover and non lovers alike.

Picasso and Barcelona go hand and hand. Our guides passion for Picasso was superb. The directions to the tour office on line are a bit confusing

Loved it! Highly recommended. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us perfectly. I like going to museums with a guide because I can appreciate the art better when I know the story behind them. This was the perfect start/intro to our Barcelona trip.

We enjoyed this tour because our tour guide spoke perfect English and had an exceptional personality. Our group was not that large so she was able to answer questions. Be sure you are in good shape for this one because it moves very quickly and if you don't keep up it is bad for everyone because there is a lot to see in a short amount of time. We loved it. Very informative.

Good way to see this. This locale has special insights to the life and creativity of Picasso his early painting of an Aunt that gives us followers of this genius a nice addition to our portfolios of his life and work. The walking tour to the museum is a nice touch but be ready for it.

Im not a fan of Picassos late works but love his early work. It was interesting to see his progression from teenager to an adult. Our guide was well informed and enthusiastic.

Fantastic! Guided tour amazing.

Excellent tour which lasted about 3 hours. Half of the tour was outdoors visiting the neighborhoods that Picasso frequented early in his career and later on as well. The second half of the tour was in the Picasso Museum and organized in chronological order from the beginning of his career which began at a very early age. You follow the progression of his career and our guide was very good at explaining the different influences which impacted his painting at different stages. It was very worthwhile and I liked not wasting time trying to enter the museum on my own and touring the museum with just a head set. I learned much more from this experience with a tour guide who has studied the artist.

You must do the walking tour with the guided tour of the museum. It gives you insights to the life of Picasso you would never see or know. The tour of the museum was well paced, time to enjoy the highlights. Our tour guide, Jose, was perfect for this venue. He gave us the right amount of information in a manner that was fun. He was kind and highly professional.
