  • Visit Dalí Museum-Theatre in Figueres
  • Personalized small group and commentary
  • Expert English-speaking guide
  • Best tour for Dali enthusiasts and you'll see hidden treasures off the beaten path
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 Palamos (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 Palamos. 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.

This was an illuminating trip, seeing not only Dali's creations at the museum (the jewelery is stunning and not to be missed), but having a glimpse of his life at home. Ana, our guide was very obliging and informative, even though I fear our group was a bit like herding cats.

I am a fan of Dali and of Barcelona. I have been to Barcelona many times but never did the Dali triad (museum in Figueres, visit to Cadaques, and then his house). I am glad I did, as it's a lot of ground to cover. Nicolas, our guide, shared the story of Dali's life on the long ride to the museum. Having the background offered a lot of context and I got a lot more out of the museum and his house than I would have on my own. Thank you, Nicolas.

What a good choice I made in selecting this complete Dali trip. Our guide was so full of knowledge and entertaining. Including the lovely town of Cadaques and Dali's house made the trip so much more memorable. I would have liked a little longer at the museum but I was able to see everything. I would recommend this day trip to everyone wanting to experience Dali while visiting in Barcelona.

The museum in Figueres was interesting and fun to see. I recommend it. The trip to Cadaques was very nice, I enjoyed being by the ocean and seeing Dali's home. A must for Dali lovers. Our guide was very well informed and gave lots of info on Salvador Dali's life.

This tour was well worth our time and money. The ride was long but Cam made good use of the time by providing excellent insight into the life of Salvador Dali, and more. The countryside was breathtaking near Caldeques. The Dali house was the best part of the tour. We wished we had more time there. Don’t skip the part. Thanks Cam for making it a perfect day!

This was a wonderful full day trip from Barcelona. We toured the Dali museum and then toured Dali's home but the highlight of the tour was our guide Feliciano. He was very knowledgeable about Dali but was also had a wonderful sense of humor and kept us engaged.

Ana, our guide, really made the trip worth it. We could have spent hours in both the Dali museum and relaxing by the coast in Cadaques, which is my only regret. Ana did a great job managing the group as well as adding a personal touch by giving us an in-depth view of Dali's life. She really did an amazing job by being our guide as well as an expert driver!

Our family had a great day with our tour guide Cam! It was a long day but he kept everything and everyone on schedule. We learned a lot and would recommend this tour highly. One of the highlights of our trip.
