Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II – Milan, Italy


Ten years ago I was there…

It was time to come back!

The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a double arcade in the center of Milan, Italy. The structure is formed by two glass-vaulted arcades intersecting in an octagon covering the street connecting Piazza del Duomo to Piazza della Scala.

  1. BRAVO!!! I was also here, but in 2008. Your photos are better than mine. And I didn't have Leia to photograph. This is a marvelous urban space, isn't it?

  6. What a grand, elegant place. I know nothing like this in the States. I'll bet one could spend many afternoons browsing through the various shops and eating at the restaurants. It looks more like a cathedral that a shopping center.

    Love the picture of Leia from a couple years back and Marina is absolutely gorgeous!

  8. I am guessing the “beautiful person” is your daughter? 🙂
    And Leia, you don't seem to have changed at all in 10 years. And I love your shots of the arcade.
