Overview

The Royal Palace and the Prado Museum are two of Madrid’s most visited attractions, but it’s easy to waste hours standing in line. This is the perfect tour for anyone who wants to get an inside look at the cultural patrimony of this great city with a local expert on hand to give you all the background and context behind the things you see and experience.

Royal Palace and Prado Museum Guided Tour

You’ll meet your local guide in front of the Statue of Goya – next to the Museo del Prado – then set off on a fully-guided tour of the most-visited museum in Spain with fast track access. Whether you are a seasoned art lover or have never set foot in a museum, your guide will introduce you to some of the greatest works of Western art in a way that is both accessible and engaging. Follow your guide through some of the gallery’s most spectacular halls and discover works of art that have shaped the history of art like “Las Meninas” by Velázquez, “La Maja Desnuda” by Goya or Rubens’ “Las Tres Gracias”. 

From there, we’ll head to the Royal Palace. As you walk along this beautiful old town and see iconic monuments, such as the Fountains of Neptune, the Congreso de los Diputados, the House of Cervantes, the famous Puerta del Sol (and other must-sees), you’ll learn how the kings and queens of two separate royal dynasties gave this area much of its monumental splendor.

Your city stroll ends on the steps of the Royal Palace, the largest royal palace in Western Europe. Skip the line and enjoy a full tour of the Palace’s grandiose rooms and halls, including the Gasparini Hall, the Porcelain Room, and the majestic Throne Room or Mirror Room. You’ll hear fascinating facts about the strict protocol followed in the palace. 

You can even combine your Royal Palace and Prado Museum Guided Tour with a Tapas Tour and have an unforgettable day in Madrid.
