I was walking through the Galleria and it's amazing because of the scale and the structure. It's not just big, there's fine detail in the buildings too.

A lot of people in the Galleria are used to its architecture, which perhaps even enhances its impact.

By all means, stop into the Galleria. It is very conveniently located right off Via Toledo and near the Piazza del Plebiscito. Don’t bother shopping there, but just admire the beauty of the interior. If you have been to the Galleria in Milano - you will be very familiar with this design. Same concept but a little smaller than Milan’s. You don’t need much time here. 15 minutes or less.

Visited this mall by accident really as we exited the Funicular.

I am not person to offer views on the ‘shopping experience’ but this structure is worth a visit and many folks were taking picture just of the roof!

Obviously it’s a popular place with several coffee type bars out in the open.

Well worth a visit

Once a focus for fashionable Neapolitans, the handsome arcades of the Galleria Umberto I were built in 1887 and rebuilt after World War II. They face Italy’s largest and oldest opera house: the Teatro San Carlo.Built for Charles of Bourbon in
1737, and later rebuilt, its fine auditorium once aroused envy in the courts of Europe.

The place was a very nice surprise, it has reminded me of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele from Milan. Lovely coffee shops.

Impressed by the architecture we ventured inside only to be immediately accosted by homeless people selling postcards. The stores were unimpressive but it was worth the time to pause to take what once must have been a marvel and beautiful building.

We visited this grandiose shopping gallery to find a cafeteria and we were stunned by its architectural beauty. It was built between 1887 - 1891 and closely resembles the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuelle II in Milan. It is also cross-shaped, but only one of the arms is shorter. Under the impressive glass-and-iron cupola and vaults, there are two additional floors above the lavish ground floor with a mezzanine.

We admired the curved main entrance which is across the Teatro di San Carlo and which leads to the shortest arm of the gallery. This structure has a harmonious symmetry: the real entrance on the right is doubled with a blind arch on the left, for esthetical reasons only.

We saw many exclusive shops on the ground floor of this great gallery.

I visited the Galleria a few times during my stay, as there was a good cafe tat sold gelato. Very impressive architecture, and it reminded me of the building in Milan.
It's such a pity that people are allowed to smoke inside, it should be banned.
