    Stop At: National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN England

    Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then make your own way to the National Gallery, a striking Pantheon-style art museum raised on a terrace overlooking Nelson’s Column and the iconic lion statues in London’s Trafalgar Square.

    Meet your guide, an art history specialist, in front of the National Cafe in Trafalgar Square for a coffee and croissant before heading inside to trace European art across the centuries.

    The National Gallery boasts one of Europe’s greatest collections of paintings by the Old Masters (European artists whose notable works were produced between the Renaissance and 18th century), and houses more than 2,300 artworks dating from the Middle Ages through the 20th century.

    Stroll from room to room, taking in the mosaic floors, marble pillars and floor-to-ceiling art, and listen as your specialist guide talks you through the gallery’s key masterpieces as well as the artists behind them.

    Throughout your private tour, pay special attention to the Italian greats — from the 13th-century Masters to the High Renaissance of Piero della Francesca, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo — and the Flemish school of art, including works by Rubens and van Eyck, considered by many to be the first great master of Flemish and Early Netherlandish painting.

    See, too, masterpieces from Rembrandt, as well as the gallery’s French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists collection, one of the finest of its kind in the world — crammed with timeless works by Monet, Cezanne, van Gogh, and Picasso.

    After roughly three hours, your tour concludes inside the National Gallery, leaving you free to continue exploring independently, should you wish.
