Oh those fantastic shops displaying such luxurious items to lust over. Besides it also has some lovely frescoes and is the perfect place to shelter when rainy!

“What a Gallery for a street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The Gallery which connects the Duomo to the old municipal office and other places is immensely beautiful and extravagantly built. The arches and the artistic decorations add to the royal stature of the place. The Bull in the middle is considered a lucky charm by the Italians.

“beautiful galleria, expensive food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

galleria is stunning - high glass roofs, superb stonework
restaurants - expensive and nothing special
constant approach of guys selling junk gets tiresome very quickly

“impressive gallery, among the best in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

a must see, wouldn't go for food & drinks, as it's too touristic, but enjoy the architecture and the deco-floor.
