  • Definitely represents the thermometer of Neapolitan life, once called the "living room", today has lost much of its importance is the sign of its decadence while maintaining its austerity, its elegance; Finally I saw that they have started the cleaning and rebuilding the walls, hoping to resume the old luster of living in the city. Majestic and the dome and four arms which intersect at a cruise all glass and iron, much more impressive are the walls that along with the glass roof made sure school in architectural matters releasing charm and beauty, if nothing else. the gallery dedicated to Umberto I from even more luster to the historic centre between Via Toledo, Via San Carlo with its glorious and Teatro San Carlo, Palazzo Reale, Piazza del Plebiscito with the corner of the historic "Caffè Gambrinus", without the dimnenticare marble flooring, that in the middle of the gallery there was built a big pink (stars) with around circle depicts the Zodiac symbols, the rest of the flooring and colored marble forming geometric designs. . Today there are boutiques and bars and singing events that keep her alive.

  • A gorgeous galleria made by the same architect of Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele in Milan. Not directly in the city centre so you'll have to walk a bit but if you have visited the one in Milan I strongly suggest to check this one out as well. It doesn't have expensive shops inside but the design of the two buildings are almost identical.
  • Wonderful! Need some fix but go in and lift your head to see the details around. You can also watch the floor. A very precious gallery.
  • Sad to see this once-impressive structure fall to such a state of disrepair BUT restoration has begun and hopefully will continue. It would be a great shame to lose this historic building to decay and neglect. Surely a financially profitable use can be found to provide it a secure future.
  • Pretty shopping center that reminds of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milano. Commercial brands may be found, along with fast food chains. The ceiling and floors are worth a few pics.
  • very neat open shopping centre. good photo opportunities here. close to the cruise port
