The fanciest and most beautiful shopping mall in Milan

I’ve written about the most beautiful shop and galerie in Paris and the most beautiful café in Budapest, but in Milan, I found the most beautiful place to shop and eat! The first stop during my cruise was Milan, and we were told we were going to a famous shopping center in Milan. I had no expectations, even though I know Italy has many historic and beautiful buildings. Even if I pictured a building in my mind, it would not have lived up to the reality!

Milan Italy Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

As we approached the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, I could see a long hallway that would lead us inside. From this angle, it didn’t look too impressive, as it just looked like a passageway to get to the other side.

Looks can be deceiving, and as we walked, the passageways seemed to expand and never end!

Maybe it just seemed that way because I just wanted to stop and keep looking around at the intricate glass ceilings and beautiful walls.

There were also detailed frescoes high above the mall.

Though there were plenty of upscale shopping options, there were also a few cafes within this galleria.

It even served gelato that looked like this! Heaven!

How could I even begin to choose?

Thanks for strolling along with me at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II! I hope you enjoyed seeing the most beautiful shopping mall in Milan!

Merci!
