Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II information
So much more than a shopping arcade, the neoclassical Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a soaring iron-and-glass structure known locally as il salotto bueno, the city's fine drawing room. Shaped like a crucifix, it also marks the passeggiata (evening stroll) route from Piazza del Duomo to Piazza di Marino and the doors of Teatro alla Scala (La Scala). In 2015 a new highline walkway gave access to the Galleria's rooftops for stunning bird's-eye views of the arcade and the city.
