Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II


The Galleria, built between 1865 and 1877 is formed by two arcades shaped like a Latin cross covered by a glass and iron dome. 

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is sometimes nicknamed “il salotto di Milano” (Milan’s living room), is an elegant nineteenth-century shopping arcade. It houses some of the most luxurious boutiques in Milan, including brands such as Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton, and many others.
