    What to Expect
    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.

    Olga did a terrific job guiding us through the narrow streets of Barcelona while weaving in stories of Picasso's life in the city and the places that shaped his personality and his work. The walk culminates in the Picasso Museum.
