Top ways to experience Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

A must while in Milan!
Sep 2021
This is a great place to catch lunch and people watch! Lots of cafe choices inside this open aired domed shopping area. Beautiful design and fun to just enjoy it with a glass of vino or coffee.

Go See

While lovely to see, everything is overpriced. I would def recommend going to see the sites and the surrounding area. Lots of stuff going on and plenty of street entertainment as well though.

One of the best
Sep 2021 • Solo
One of the best Architectural Gallery is here in Milan, beside the Cathedral and connecting the Cathedral to Theatre Alla Scala.
Don’t miss the mosaic of the bull in the center of Gallery, put the heel of the shoe on his balls and take a ride on yourself will bring you luck

Another spot that is a must see while you are in Milan
Jul 2021
Another spot that is a must-see while you are in Milan and since it is right next to the Duomo you might as well walk through and get a gelato or stop for a cafe.
