This is not really a shopping mall for shopping. Go there to be amazed by the architecture, the mosaics, the incredible glass-domed ceiling (which may remind you of the Milan shopping arcade), and the people-watching! Okay…you can also shop if you want to. If you are hungry, get in line at the famous La Sfogliatella bakery and have one of everything. We tried an amazing rum-soaked pastry filled with cannoli stuffing and chocolate chips and their signature Sfogliatella, a crispier pastry filled with cheesy/creamy filling. Both were winners!

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.

Unique gallery built by 1890 was named after King Umberto I and fashioned after Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. It combines businesses, shops, cafés and apartments on upper floors. An UNESCO listing as part of the Historic Centre of Naples. The beautiful central 16 panelled glass dome and the side glass panels are shaped in the form of a cross. Ornate architecture, sculptures and original mosaics adorn the place. The light from the glass ceilings cast an impressive glow. The place is worth seeing even if time has seen it fade a little.

Galleria Umberto I is located just opposite the Teatro San Carlo. It is a large shopping mall building, a bit pompous, but worth while visiting when you are around there. The coffee shop in there seems nice, did not visit because they close rather early.

An impressive building, quite centrally located near the Plaza del Plebiscito (which is really dirty and full of grafiti) . Don't forget to look at the mosaics on the floor.
The galleria has a few very nice shops, but more and more souvenir shops and cheap restaurants have found their way here.

Invariably people are going to compare this building to one in Milan, which it resembles. It's not as elegant, and some of the stores are vacant. Those that are there include a McDonalds--if that gives you an idea. However, it is a beautiful interior space, that contains one of the finest bakeries for the selling of Neapolitan pastries: Sfogliatelle Mary. Free to enter.

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.

We didn’t actually go into shop but to observe the beautiful architecture. The glass ceiling is truly spectacular and you can stand and take in its beauty. Because it’s a shopping centre it’s free to get in which is always a bonus. It can be accessed from four different streets. Go on take a look.,

One classic mall to visit and walk through. The architecture and the shops is one of those that is so representative of Italian high end shopping and dining.

Very nice place to visit as it is nearby many other tourist attractions including the Theater which is just next to it.
