Private Sightseeing through Madrid in private car & visit to the Prado Museum
This private Madrid Museum Tours will enchant you. The tour begins at your hotel. We will proceed to the Prado Museum which is the most important National Art Gallery in the world in paintings between the 15th and 18th centuries which harbors masterpieces from such masters as Van der Weyden, El Bosco, Tiziano, Greco, Rubens, Ribera, Velázquez, Murillo, Goya, Rosales, Sorolla, among others. This Tour combines an instructive journey through the astounding Spanish history from the Catholic Kings to the Romantic period with the fantastic evolution of the art of painting between the “Quattrocento” and the 19th century.
Our official guides and experts in art history will explain all about the Prado Museum in quite different ways as is customary with conventional tourist guides companies or audio guides, provided by the Museum itself. In our private tours we will discuss the history of each masterpiece and its creative artist, the contextual environment and the relationship with other schools of painting. We will provide a painting technique analysis, and best of all, the secrets that hide behind the masterpieces of the greatest masters of painting. All this explained in a fun and easy to understand manner, which is the best way to learn, enjoy and appreciate art.
Our Private Tour continues by car on a relaxing sightseeing tour through the Spanish capital. We will drive to the charming Old Madrid which began to be built 450 years ago. We will admire the beautiful parks of Green Madrid (it should be noted that the Spanish capital is the European capital with the most parks and gardens). We will drive through the broad avenues of Madrid’s Habsburg dynasty, the Gran Via with its surprisingly interesting buildings based on the ”Prairie School architectural style”. We will visit the exclusive Barrio de Salamanca and its modern and elegant shops (ideal for ”shopping”). We will proceed to the El Viso mid 20th century residential neighborhood, built originally for poor people and later to become an urban zone for the wealthy. We will then arrive to the Chamartin district where the stadium of Real Madrid is located surrounded by top class restaurants.
