From the Eiffel Tower at Paris to the canals of Venice at the Venetian, it’s easy to feel like you’re on the other side of the pond.

You can watch the show from the sidewalk or from one of the restaurants that looks out on the 8.5-acre lake, which is loosely based on northern Italy’s Lake Como near the village of Bellagio, Lombardy.
