Top ways to experience Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Photo opportunity indeed! As it is so close to the main square and Duomo, you should walk through it. There are glorious shop windows to admire.

The architecture of the ceiling and the buildings is beautiful, and the floors are breathtaking. A great place to window shop and people watch. The pastry shop above Prada, Marchesi, has great views and excellent coffee and pastries.

OK so if you have a nice looking credit card and like to shop for luxury goods, go ahead and shop here, but even if you don't, visit it just for the views, this gallery is looking stunning and is located right next to one of the most iconic places of Milan.

What a stunning building, it really is beautiful, you won’t find your standard w h smiths or Marks & Spencer’s here, but even if you’ve no interest in designer shops it’s worth going to visit.

Pedestrian gallery that connect piazza duomo with piazza della scala. It's full of expensive shops and restaurants but everyone can walk and watch the Showcases. In the central part there is a Bull on the floor and it's typical to put your Heel on his b*lls and rotate three times

The Galleria is home to luxury stores, books, and paintings, in addition to several restaurants, cafés, bars, and even a hotel.

Great Shopping area to walk through or hang out, lots of high end designer shops and unless you are planning to buy something very expensive its mainly window shopping !

The glass ceiling is amazing and there are some great photo opportunities, be sure to spin on the "little Torino" bull which is said to bring you great fortune!

A free site to visit, which makes a change! Full of very posh shops but nice to look on the windows and take photos of the ceiling. Also right next to the famous cathedral!

Well worth a walk through to enjoy the stunning architecture. Be sure to look up and down to enjoy the ceilings and floors in this very ornate structure.
