C/ Palau de la Música, 1 , C/ Palau de la Música, 1, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

All of our tours meet at our office, which is directly across from the outside cafe area of the Palau de la Musica. We advise that you arrive 15 minutes before the tour starts.

8:30 AM
Plaça de Catalunya , Plaça de Catalunya, 08002 Barcelona, Spain

Depending on the size of the group and the traffic restrictions on the day of the tour, your tour will finish back at the office, or in Placa Catalunya, which is an easy 3-5 minute walk from the office.

Leave central Barcelona by air-conditioned minivan and set off on your day trip. As you travel, listen as your guide shares tales of Salvador Dalí’s life, and gaze out over the passing countryside and villages.

After a while, arrive in Figueres, Dalí’s birthplace and home to his famous Dalí Theatre-Museum. See the house where Dalí was born in 1904, and then continue to the museum. Home to a vast range of Dalí’s creations, it offers a unique insight into his works and artistic vision.

Marvel at the exterior with its giant, rooftop egg sculptures, and use your included ticket to skip any admission lines and head straight inside. Enjoy time to explore at leisure, and view everything from Dalí’s early experiments with cubism to later surrealist works such as the Galatea of the Spheres, and the famed Mae West Room installation.

Having explored here, reconvene with your guide and continue your tour as shown below depending on the time of year. For more details, see the Itinerary section.

Winter: Cadaqués and Port Lligat (September 1 - June 30):
Depart Figueres and make the scenic drive to Cadaqués. Admire this pretty seaside Costa Brava village, and get free time for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant. Next, travel to Port Lligat, a coastal village where Dalí built a private retreat, now converted into a museum. Head inside (own expense) to explore, and after a panoramic drive around the spectacular Cap de Creus, finish your tour in central Barcelona.

Summer: Pubol Castle and Platja del Castell (July 1 – August 31): 
Leave Figueres for Pubol Castle, once a home of Dalí and his wife Gala, located in the village of the same name. Visit the Gala Dalí House-Museum in the castle, and after lunch (own expense), venture to the attractive seafront town of Platja del Castell. Admire the castle-like house of muralist Josep Maria Sert, a friend of Dalí, where Dalí visited during the 1930s, and then return to Barcelona, where your trip ends.

Venture to one of the many beautiful beach side towns that dot the Costa Brava coastline. Please remember to bring suitable clothing if you want to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea or relax on the beach.

Please note: The Salvador Dalí House in Port Lligat is closed between January 1 and January 4, and January 11 to February 11. On these dates, guests will see only the exterior of the house.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Explore Catalunya
8.15am - You will join your tour at our office, which is right across from the world famous Palau de la Musica. You will meet your guide and have an introduction as to what to expect during the day. Your tour begins at 8.30am, but we always recommend arriving 15 minutes before.
Pass By:  
Eixample
8.30am - You will leave Barcelona though the Example district of town. As you head out of the city, your guide will give you a brief history of Barcelona, before letting you sit back and relax on the 90 minute drive to Figueres.
Stop At:  
Dali Theatre-Museum
10.00am - You will arrive at the world famous Dalí Museum-Theatre in Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí, where you will be taken straight past the queues inside. Step inside the surreal world of Salvador Dalí and find a museum like none other. Dalí wanted visitors to see his massive collection as a ‘whole’ work, and for this reason he wanted no catalogues and refused to have his works placed in chronological or subject order. Inside is a world of fantasy mixed with architecture mixed with paintings and sculptures. It’s a complete surrealistic experience.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Cadaques
Schedule September 1st - June 30th 1.00pm - After a morning discovering the art of Dalí, you will head to the beautiful coastal village of Cadaqués. Famous for its white washed Mediterranean houses, narrow shady streets, and sandy bay, this is one of the most picturesque villages on the Costa Brava. But what really stands out for many people is the dramatic drive there, which offers some of the best views in the whole of Catalunya. This is the perfect place for lunch. In the afternoon you will travel just a few minutes up the coast to the even smaller village of Port Lligat.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Salvador Dali House
Schedule September 1st - June 30th 3.30pm - Port Lligat is where Dalí sought the peace and quiet that truly inspired him. This stunning little bay is where he first built then enlarged a simple fisherman's cottage into a magnificent and unique home. You will have the chance to visit inside this unusual building. His studio looks as if he has just stepped out for a stroll, and thanks to the careful way it has been maintained, it's easy to image he is still living in the house. Your guide will regale you with stories about his life there and the, share some secrets about his unusual marriage to his beloved Gala. NOTE: Your tickets will have been pre booked by the office. If you want to take advantage of this, please pay the guide during the day.

Really enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Arnau, is very informative and speaks fluent English. Cadaques is beautiful. When I booked the tour I just wanted to see the Dali museum and didn't care about Cadaques, but the view was amazing; reminded me of Greece. Dali theatre museum is smaller than I expected but Dali house definitely exceeded my expectation. It is a must-see attraction; the design is ingenious; most of the furniture is original and the scenery surrounding the house is absolutely stunning. Make sure you take cash with you because for the house tickets you cannot pay by card.

The tour guide Arnau was very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this tour as a break from Barcelona. It is also not too intense as the drive is long and gives you plenty of time to recharge. The scenery was very interesting, though, and Arnau shared a lot of facts during the ride that kept me engaged.

I am intrigued by Salvador Dali and love his art. I had been to the museum.in Figueras but never to the house in Port Lligat. The tour of his house was amazing! We ate at a seafood restaurant in Cadeques and enjoyed the museum.

This experience is a great way to spend a day learning about Dali without having to coordinate transportation which is definitely the biggest obstacle as it is not easy driving on mountain roads to Port Lligat. It was a more a self guided tour as we explored the Museum and house on our own. Could have used more time at the Museum and for lunch. Be sure to bring some snacks as the only chance to get food is in Cadaques.
icon Response from Host , Jun. 2022
Hello Thank you for sending us your review. I just wanted to comment on the self-guided observation. The reason we do not take you around the museum is because Dalí wanted people to discover his work on their own and in their own way. We talk all about him and his work on the way to Figueres, and we add insights throughout the day. Best regards, Robert

Gloria our guide lead us through an intense day thinking about Dali and his art, and putting it in historical context. We learned a lot about his life and about the things he grew up with and saw every day. Amazing feeling to stand in his shoes for a few hours. But even if you’re not a Dali fan, that the tour is wonderful and scenic.
