Additional view are offered if you visit the manicured garden that fronts the Bellagio's porte-cochere. Carefully cross over, walk through the garden around the small fountain and you reach the park's railing that sits above the walkway mentioned above.
This post shows some of the photos taken from these two vantage points. The remains of the replica of the Paris Opera House that is obscured by the Sugar Factory restaurant and store is now in full view in these photos. Best of all the greenery and lake of the Bellagio accents the view and obscures the traffic of Las Vegas Boulevard.
