Booking a guided tour of the Sevilla Fine Arts Museum was the way to go! Our guide, Julio, was very friendly, interesting and knowledgeable, and he provided a fun way to learn about the art history of Spain and paintings and sculptures in the museum. I enjoyed the museum and learned much more having Julio as a guide, than I would have touring the museum on my own. Our tour lasted about 2 hours, and after the tour, we could stay at the museum as long as we wished. Well worth it!!

We really enjoyed the guided visit of some of the museum's masterworks. Carmen provided us with meaningful and as detailed explainations as necessary for our group. We strongly recommend this guided tour.
