Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Milan: 108 reviews and 220 photos
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II was constructed between 1865 - 1867 and has got a high arcade with a roof of glass and iron. It has got its name from king Vittorio Emanuele II, who inaugurated the galleria when it was finished.
If you walk through the galleria from Piazza del Duomo you will come to Piazza della Scala. On your way you will pass shops, cafés and restaurants, some of them quite expensive.
In the middle, where the four branches meet, there is a 47 metre high glass dome. By the vault there are mosaics of Europe, America, Asia and Africa. Under the dome, on the floor, you can see the coat-of-arm of some Italian cities and of the Savojens family.
