What's in our tour?

This is a double-feature.

1) A skip-the-line ticket to the Picasso Museum: the world’s largest collection of Picasso, covering all the periods of the artist who revolutionized art again and again. Your ticket is valid every day, at the time of your choosing.

2) An art walking tour of the Marais, one of Paris’ most inspiring districts, and the heart of Paris’ fashion and art galeries.

Highlights

  • With this skip-the-line ticket valid any day, any time, spend your time inside the Picasso Museum, the world’s largest collection of Picasso’s works – instead of outside, in the long queue to the lavish, recently refurbished Museum. Picasso spent most of his life in France, and the Musée Picasso hosts paintings and sculptures from every period of Picasso’s revolutionizing art. It also hosts Picasso’s private collection of his favorite artists – Matisse, Miro, Degas etc.

 

  • Prior to seeing the museum, a local Parisian will lead you through the area – the Marais, Paris’ top district for art galeries, trendy fashion, and aristocratic mansions. Your Marais tour starts near the Pompidou center for contemporary art and ends some 90 minutes later right outside the Picasso Museum.
