Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan

(4.5/5 based on 16,000+ reviews on the web)
Now a huge shopping mall, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II was designed by architect Giuseppe Mengoni and built between 1865 and 1877. Often called "the living room of Milan" because of its importance as a popular meeting and dining place, this building is topped by a glass dome and features an exquisite mosaic floor. Considered one of the city's main landmarks, the mall is home to some of the region's oldest shops, as well as a number of modern, upscale boutiques, including Louis Vuitton and Prada. Choose from numerous cafes and restaurants that serve a wide range of foods for all budgets. This busy commercial building is also a good place to learn about the city's art and architecture, with several notable galleries spread across the mall's extensive grounds.

  • Really impressive shopping district with some truly stunning architecture. Remarkable sense or granite and design. Lots of high end brands here.
  • Just one of my favourite shopping arcades in the world. Not only the vicinity to the breathtaking Dome makes this place special. Great architecture and just a must see place in Milano!
  • Amazing place. I stayed in the apartments in the Galleria. Milan is one of my favourite cities and this is one of the stand out places.
  • Amazing building. Dont be shy and get inside. Enjoy the place even more having a nice dinner in one of the restaurants.
