Owner description: For sheer belle époque splendor, this extravagant 19th-century glass-topped, barrel-vaulted tunnel serves as a lively, noisy and colorful shopping mall, teeming with life and inviting you to people-watching from the tables that spill from the Galleria's many bars and restaurants.

Walked thru from La Scala to Duomo and enjoyed the people watching and photo ops. Beautiful architecture, decor, and shop windows.

What a wonderful place. The top designer shops shoulder to shoulder under a magnificent glass vaulted roof. The winow displays were just perfection.Even the floor inside was beautiffully tiled. Watch out for a group of people towards the left of the shopping area. You will be sure to see somebody spinning around on the mosaic of the bull, which is custimaty to do.

My honest belief is that the main purpose of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is to impress first timers in Milan, and it serves its purpose well! One entrance facing Duomo, the other entrance facing the Scala Theater, the Galleria is the most impressive small shopping mall of all times, combining history, elegance, and luxury. Needless to say, you have to pay double the price in case you want to have a cappuccino in one of the cafes inside (with the exception of Autogrill), but it is worth it for once or twice!

Beautiful, enormous domed ceiling, wonderful flooring & history. Beautiful expensive looking shops!
Great for window shopping & crowd gazing over a coffee at one of the cafés.

It is must in Milan and if you wish do some shopping and enjoy the architecture :)
Don't miss the bull in the middle (on the ground) and turn around on it to get some luck.
