This was a great way to spend an early evening. The weather was cool and pleasant, the setting was lovely, and it was a GREAT place to people-watch. Yes, the water show was cool (if not "magical"), but it was the overall experience that made this a good time: happy, smiling people gathering to enjoy a cultural landmark/experience together. We...

DO NOT MISS this show. We went on the last day of our trip and it was amazing. So much fun, you just can not take your eyes off of the water. We got there a little late, so the crowds were very heavy and lots of tour buses were in sight. We walked all the way up museum and... More

The fountain was comparable to the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. There are small cafés that sell sangria and food along the sides. The best place to view the fountain is from the steps across the way or on the walls of the stairs that lead into the plaza. The show was very pretty. Arrive early if you... More

A great spectacle of water and shapes that goes to the beat of the music. There are several ways to get there, by bus or subway, and of course taxi. It is walking distance from the Olympic stadium and other attractions. Keep in mind to check the website before going. The days and times of the show varies according to... More

We were at a loss on what to do on our third day (having exhausted ourselves on the first two) and this was a great solution. It's genuinely beautiful and coming round that corner to see the fountain and it's steps up to the intimidating National Gallery was a great moment. Take a picture by the big waterfall, sit at...

Get there early and wait. Show starts around 21.00 and lasts until around 23.00. Take some water with you. Not many shops around.

I came to see this when I was younger, but from what I remember it was fantastic! The fountains went in time with the music, they had different colours. It was amazing! I'd definitely go to see this again, to refresh my memory of it. So ignore the date. I did not go then, I just cannot submit a review... More

Loved it! Go! It's a perfect date night activity and it's free! Each show is different. Thought it would be the same music and lights but it's not. Perfect end of night (or beginning for some) activity.

I'm an adult and I got such a kick out of this dang magic fountain! It is so cool! There are several different fountains that are timed to lights and music and it is a really neat experience to see the fountain show! If you're in the area I would highly recommend it.

Best to watch it when it's dark to make the most out of the experience. It starts at 9 pm but check the schedule as i don't think they have it everyday.
