IT-140921

I don't know why but i didn't visit the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery when i was in Milan back in 2005. I guess someone told me it was only shops, expensive shops and i didn't find it interresting. If i ever visit the city again i've to go there!

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is one of the most elegant and stylish shopping malls in Italy with cafes, restaurants and shops. The Galleria is topped by a glass roof and links Piazza del Duomo with the Teatro alla Scala.
The shopping arcade is named after Vittorio Emanuele II who was the first king of Italy. Giuseppe Mengoni designed The Galleria in 1865 and it was built by 1877. The Galleria has an octagonal shape adorned with mosaics and a magnificent glass roof. The floors are decorated with mosaics of the signs of the zodiac. - in:
