Fodor's Expert Review Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Duomo Store/Mall Fodor's Choice
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Duomo, Milan, Milan, Lombardy, and the Lakes, Italy, Europe.

This spectacular late-19th-century Belle Époque tunnel is essentially one of the planet's earliest and most select shopping malls, with upscale tenants that include Gucci and Prada. This is the city's heart, midway between the Duomo and La Scala. It teems with life, which makes for great people-watching from the tables that spill out from bars and restaurants, where you can enjoy an overpriced coffee. Books, clothing, food, hats, and jewelry are all for sale. Known as Milan's "parlor," the Galleria is often viewed as a barometer of the city's well-being.
