One one the most beautiful places of Milan Nov 23, 2006
The Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery is located in the center of Milan. It is a 19th century elegant glass - roofed arcade dedicated to the King of Italy, where many luxury shops and cafes are situated. The logos of the stores must be strictly uniform. They are all gold writings on black surface. Even McDonald’s.

The gallery connects the Cathedral’s Square (Piazza Duomo) with the La Scala Square (Piazza della Scala) and consists by two intersecting streets. In the centre of the wonderful mosaic floor of the gallery is located the picture of a bull. It is a good luck tradition to rotate on themselves standing with the right heel on the bull’s genitals. Hundreds of people do it everyday.

Glamour and Fashion at Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II Jun 25, 2006
Milan is one of the world's fashion capitals and this galleria houses the most famous designers stores.

It's located at the Duomo’s Square, full of fancy cafes, stores and bookstores. It's so trendy and fashion. It connects the Duomo's square with the Scala square. But it's not only about the stores inside. The architecture of this Galleria is beautiful. Its ceilings and floors are very nice too.

Of course everything is expensive here. So I don't think you'd do much shopping here, but at least take a walk through it and feel the fashion in the air.

impressive arcade in the city centre Mar 12, 2006
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II di Milano is a shopping arcade and is situated in the city centre next to the Duomo di Milano.

The Galleria is named by the 1st king of united italy and was designed by Guiseppe Mengoni.

In the centre of the Galleria you'll find a beautiful glass dome and on the floor there are mosaic inlays. If you spin around on the "balls" of the bull mosaic it will bring you luck (according to legend).

Many luxurios shops like Prada, Gucci,... and nice little cafés and restaurants are located inside.

Galleria connects the 2 famous landmarks Duomo di Milano and the Teatro Alla Scala.

Everything's very expensive inside but the building is just beautiful and a look worth!

It's really nice to go inside and to take a look at all the shops, restaurants...
