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.

  • Even if you’re not planning to spend money on haute couture or fashion accessories it is interesting to see the display of all the major Italian fashion brands in this semi outdoor galleria.

  • nothing fancy, just the title: an old shopping mall. you can eyeshop or you can buy what you want, but it is nothing special. The restaurants are a thing, but you can find way better alternatives...

  • The Gallerias are definitely a must see. Even if just for a quick window shopping session and a picture in the middle (literally everyone has their phone out). All the shops are high end but there are a couple of nice ice cream shops. It’s right next to the Duomo so head on over after and walk around. Highly recommend to visit
  • Absolutely beautiful! Every store window makes you want to go in and shop! The architecture and overall beauty is breathtaking! We walked in and out of every section and were in awe with the magnificent structure. The amount of people was crazy! We happened to be there during fashion week and there were models dressed and taking photos everywhere! If you go to Milan you have to go to the Galleria!!!
