Hello! I am Pablo and these are the reasons why my tour will be exciting for you: 1) I have experience: I've been working as an art journalist for 20 years in museums, TV, radio, newspapers and magazines. 2) I have the knowledge: with a degree in Art History from University College London. And 3) Above all, I have passion: art can help us how to deal with emotions and, therefore, to live a better life.

Tour description

Here you will discover the masterpieces of the Prado Museum in two ways:

  • With your head: you will understand what they mean and why they are so good.
  • With your heart: you will feel the emotions inside each painting.

A work of art is, above all, feelings. On this route you will learn Titian's secrets to overcome heartbreak, how El Greco defeated fear, Velázquez's tricks to enjoy life more or why Rubens was so happy.

Did you know that in the Prado Museum there are paintings that can make you happier? If you have ever considered leaving your job and change your life, if you can't defeat sadness or need to gain self-confidence... this is your route.

Small groups: no more than 7 people per tour.

IMPORTANT: you must buy the tickets to the museum before the starting hour of the route. So, please arrive at the meeting point at the appointed time with the tickets already purchased. You have two options:

  1.  On the website (entradas.museodelprado.es). Ideal. Without queues. No lines.
  2.  At the ticket office: there are usually queues, so we recommend that you arrive between 30 and 45 minutes before the starting hour of the tour in order to have time to buy them.

If you have questions, get in contact with me and I'll help you. ;-)

Pablo was very deeply knowledgable and gave us a new perspective on art. He gave us details on important paintings that other people might just walk by. He took time to answer our questions and was never rushed. he shows deep insight into the museum's collection and I strongly recommend him as a guide.
