It has to be said that this is the most stunning shopping gallery. Grand architecture, combined with high end luxury stores (think Prada etc), and people watching make for a very pleasant experience. The arcade is in the form of a cross, with a central dome which looks amazing all lit up at Christmas time. The central dome also contains paintings of all the continents which Italy has ruled, and well carved sculpture. All shopping units are rented by the stores, but owned by the city, which ensures the uniformed look and high standards of maintenance.
If you are feeling rather flush there are cafes and bars for a spot of people watching, but most people just come to parade and window shop. Lovely view towards the Duomo and a stunning central location.
