Who is the Private Prado and “Retiro Park” Tour For?
A visit to ¨Museo Nacional del Prado¨ is a must for anyone coming to Madrid as part of the exploration of the Golden Triangle of Art. This cultural experience is enriching and enjoyable for both children and adults. In particular, if you love or are curious about Spanish history and culture, then the Prado museum will provide an artistic context to appreciate it. Whether you are an art student, retired couple, family, group of friends or business colleagues this private tour is for you.
What to expect on the Private Prado and “Retiro” Tour:
Firstly, you will skip the line and access the museum directly with your experienced private tour guide, Luis. We begin the visit with a brief explanation of Spanish history and culture. Once inside the museum we will start with the Flemish and Dutch schools on the ground floor including Bosch’s Garden of the Earthly Delights. Next we will take a look at the Venetian school with geniuses like Titian. On the first floor, we will continue with the Italian masters and stop to contemplate the collection of El Greco (who I personally believe is the master of the Spanish Late Renaissance). After a brief gaze at “Ribera”, we will immerse ourselves in the brilliance of the brushstrokes of “Velazquez”. Don´t be surprised if the hairs on your back rise due to the sheer splendor and magic of this room… Following this, we will have a short look at Paul Rubens´ artworks. By the way, the Prado Museum has the best Baroque painting collection in the world! We will conclude this visit with the three periods of maestro Goya: the Cartoons for tapestries, the Court and Portrait Period as well as the Black Paintings. The private visit to “Museo del Prado” is followed by a relaxing stroll throughout the most popular park in Madrid, the ¨Parque del Buen Retiro¨. Retiro Park highlights are: “Angel Caído” (Fallen Angel), “Rosaleda” (Rose garden), “Palacio de Cristal” (Crystal Palace), “Palacio Velázquez“and the astonishing artificial lake. This tour is limited to a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7 people.
