    What to Expect
    Salvador Dalí fans and art lovers are sure to delight in this private full-day exploration with a guide of his birthplace of Figueres and the cities of his favorite region, the Costa Brava. Receive personalized attention from your private guide as you discover the places and creative inspiration of this one-of-a-kind artist.

    Start your day with a pickup at 8:30am from your hotel in central Barcelona, continuing by private minivan or sedan to Figueres, the home town of Dalí and the site of the Dali Theatre-Museum. Stop by the artist’s birthplace on Monturiol Street, then head to the museum, where you’ll find an expansive collection that explores the fantastical mind of this creative genius, spanning architecture, sculpture, paintings and plenty of “surreal” surprises. 

    Leaving Figueres, your next destination will vary depending on the time of year. For those taking the tour between September 16th and June 30th (winter), you’ll head to some of the old stomping grounds of Dalí, including the picturesque seaside city of Cadaqués, a village of whitewashed houses and stunning coastal views, along with Port Lligat and Cap de Creus. Those taking the tour between July 1st and September 15th (summer) will explore Dalí’s Pubol Castle before heading to Palamos, a hidden gem of the Costa Brava. See the Itinerary details below for more information about each trip option.

    This private tour is hosted by a professional guide. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, who will then prepare for your private tour.

    When I took the tour I had to meet at their office, which is right near the Palace of Catalan Music. I was able to walk from my location.
