Botin Lunch and Prado Museum Visit in Madrid
Combine a visit to Madrid’s most popular museum with a delicious lunch at one of the city’s most famous restaurants. Avoid the long queues with a skip-the-line ticket for the Prado Museum of Madrid and discover masterpieces by Goya, Raphael, and Rembrandt on a guided walking tour. Then, tuck into a delicious lunch with wine at the Botin restaurant, whose former patrons include Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and the Kings of Spain.
What to Expect

Discover the dramatic history and rich culture of Spain through two of Madrid’s most famous institutions: the Prado Museum and the Sobrino de Botín restaurant, named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest restaurant in the world!

Head straight to the must-see paintings at Prado Museum (no waiting in line required!) as you discover the dramatic history of Spain through art in a fascinating and succinct 1.5 hour tour. The characters, artists and events that made these works possible will come alive as you make visit approximately 20 of the most famous artworks. You'll see works by masters like Velazquez, Goya, Bosch and Titian, and gain a firm footing to appreciate and understand each masterpiece.

Then, after a morning the in the museum, make your way to Madrid’s gorgeous Literary Quarter and see remnants of Spain’s Golden Age. Stroll the streets that were frequented by Spain’s literary greats before diving into a century-old tavern for a traditional Madrid aperitif.

Thirst quenched, head to the oldest restaurant in the world for a leisurely lunch complete with slow-roasted pork and red Rioja wine! Demystify the living history inside Botin, from its escape tunnels to the table still reserved for writer Ernest Hemingway, before tasting the roasted house specialty from the nearly 300+ year old ovens. You'll dine as Goya, F. Scott Fitzgerald, the Kings of Spain and others did!
