Now a huge shopping mall, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II was designed by architect Giuseppe Mengoni and built between 1865 and 1877. Often called "the living room of Milan" because of its importance as a popular meeting and dining place, this building is topped by a glass dome and features an exquisite mosaic floor. Considered one of the city's main landmarks, the mall is home to some of the region's oldest shops, as well as a number of modern, upscale boutiques, including Louis Vuitton and Prada. Choose from numerous cafes and restaurants that serve a wide range of foods for all budgets. This busy commercial building is also a good place to learn about the city's art and architecture, with several notable galleries spread across the mall's extensive grounds.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II Reviews
Es una galería de compras con locales bastante caros. Lo bueno es su arquitectura pero para comprar es muy caro. Recomendables los helados de la salida a la plaza more »It is a shopping arcade offering quite expensive premises. The good thing is its architecture but to buy is very expensive. Recommended exit square ice cream
연말과 연초에 방문했어요 언제나 많은 사람들에 떠밀려 다녀야 하지만 명품샵 디스플레이만 봐도 멋진곳 반대쪽 입구로 나가면 유명한 라스칼라가 있어요 more »At the beginning of the new year and I've always have a lot of people washed up on the visit but a great place to look at the other side of luxury shops display only the entrance of the famous La Scala's pull out
It is the most stylish shopping centre I have ever seen! Just an unique atmosphere. The structure is masterpiece indeed. There is an option to go to the roof and see the nice view from there. You can find here all the top famous Italian fashion brands and amazing restaurants. I do recommend you to visit it if you are in Milan even for a day.
Beautiful building full of high end shops. Even great experience for window shoppers. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Step outside and you're facing the gigantic cathedral. Lots of movies are made in this area. If you haven't been here, worth visiting. Must try local street food too, especially in side streets.
