Take an immersive walk through the life of Pablo Picasso during this Barcelona walking tour covering some of his regular hangout spots and his education as a painter. This unique opportunity to view Barcelona through the eyes of this famous artist will add a new layer of depth to your visit to this Catalan capital.
Start your walking tour by meeting your guide in central Barcelona at 3pm for the English-language tour, where you'll begin a walk through the life of the artist during his time here from 1895 to 1905. The rich creative climate that was prevalent in the city during Picasso's time played a critical role in the artist's development.
Follow your guide along the bohemian thoroughfares where Picasso once walked, stopping at El Quatre Gats, a well-known Barcelona café where the artist once socialized with the city's creative community. Pass by the Llotja Mar, an art school where Picasso once honed his craft, taking time to view the three friezes at the Frisos del Col-legi d'Arquitectes, which represent the artist's only open-air works. 
Proceed to a variety of other key sites with significance to Picasso, pausing to investigate spots where he once painted and taking a leisurely stroll through the La Ribera quarter as you make your way to the Picasso Museum. This gallery, which contains one of the world's largest collections of the artist's work, is frequently plagued by long lines for entry. Thankfully, your tour allows you the opportunity to skip the line, so proceed inside to check out the museum's massive collection covering more than 4,000 Picasso works. During your exploration of the museum, gain added insight from your guide, who will help navigate you to the most important highlights, many of which were created during the artist's formative early years.
Finish your tour at the museum, which you can continue to explore at your leisure or depart when you're ready.

Excellent guide.

, Oct 2018

We took this tour on our first afternoon in Barcelona. It was a great introduction to the old area of Barcelona and the history of the area. Our guide was amazing and knew so much about Picasso and the area. We loved this tour. It was a great way to start off our visit!

Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. Our view of the experience was that the Gothic Quarter walk through added little of value to the subject of Picasso since most of it involved looking at buildings where he had lived for a short time or gone to school. The Gothic Quarter itself is a great place for exploring but not in this particular context. Most of the time spent on that part could have been more productively used within the museum itself to make the viewing and discussion of his work less cursory.

This tour guide's name escapes me, she was very good, informative, knowledgeable and professional-the tour was absolutely wonderful, do not leave Barcelona, without seeing this museum. Wonderful experience-lovely tour.

This tour was wonderful! It was a great way to learn about Picasso's life and the evolution of his works.

The walk was a little long from start to the museum and was meant for a true Picasso lover interested in details of his life, e,g, scenes / inspiration from specific paintings, his apartment during his teenage years, where his wife lived, etc. If you're looking for a general introduction to Picasso and his works, I would recommend that you consider a different, shorter tour at the museum. I also wouldn't recommend for children under 12. Kids were more interested in street performers than Picasso.

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
