“Can't miss it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

The Galleria is simply awesome and a must-do if you visit Naples. No matter how long you spend in the Galleria, it will not be enough to appreciate the construction!!!!! Definitely get a guide to help you with wandering through for the best appreciation of this place. Can't miss it!

“Stunning architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Our impression of a lot of Naples was streets in a need of a good clean and beautiful old buildings looking for a injection of new life. Amidst all this there are absolute gems like this galleria. It is located in one of the busier shopping precincts and definitely worth a visit.

“Beautiful galleria, busy atmosphere, lots of cafes and shops.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We walked through to look at the structure itself. Like the reviews say, beautiful. We stopped at a café and had some delicious roasted veggies (unexpectedly not hot) and a couple of beers. This was the most expensive and least impressive "snack" breaks that we had during our entire Italy stay -- we visited in Naples, Venice, and Rome. A draft beer was 5 Euros and the small portion of roasted eggplant was 4.50 euros. Plus you have to pay "cover" to sit at a table - cuperto. In Pompeii a beer was 4.20 (and I think the Pompeii beer was bigger). So while the galleria is awesome to see and visit, I wouldn't eat or drink there -- unless you savor that type of bustling atmosphere.

“Amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This Galleria was just beautiful! The shops and cafes were not that awesome, but the ceilings and floors are magnificent. Couldn't get enough of it, especially the mosaics on the floor at the center of the galleria depicting a big compass as well as various deities.

“Good for shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This shopping gallery is a smaller version from the one in Milan. You can find famous brans here if you are in the mood for shopping while you are in Naples.
