The Emanuele II Promenade is located on the north side of Milan Cathedral Square and connects to Scala Square. It is widely recognized as one of Europe's most beautiful structures. Two cross-shaped corridors, topped with glass domes, meet together. When the sun shines through the glass domes, the shimmering colors are absolutely spectacular. When you come to Milan, you have to stop at the promenade. It's also a great place to go shopping. You can find many designer brands, including Gucci, LV, Prada, etc.
You have to take subway line M1 or M3, and alight at Duomo Station.
Along Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II there are both high end fashion shops such as Gucci, LV, Prada and so on, and also the ‘mass brand shops’ like H&M, Zara and others. The operating hours starts later during the weekends.

I have been to Milan more than a couple of times and I love being there to wonder history and modern to beauty.
Milan’s illustrious history and modern status as the financial hub of Italy means there is a profusion of magnificent buildings, contributed over centuries by the world’s best architects. Unlike many other cities in Italy that are dominated by one particular architectural period – such as medieval Bologna or Siena – Milan has exemplary architecture from many epochs, from Renaissance to neoclassical.
Buildings range from the Renaissance-style Santa Maria delle Grazie church (which has a fun optical illusion and is designated a Unesco World Heritage Site) to the 19th-century shopping plaza, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. There are also art-nouveau townhouses with geometric stained-glass windows, detailed floral motifs and ornate metalwork in Porta Venezia, as well as the sweet yellow case di ringhiera, traditional workers’ houses in the Navigli and somewhat scattered throughout the city.
Vittorio Emanuele II gallery contains all the charm of classic and modern Milan together at the same time. In this photo you can see all its splendor at the first light of day.
Milan | There is a legend on the promenade of Emmanuel II, do you know?
The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, built by the Italian architect Giuseppe Mengoni in 1865, is now the shopping centre of Milan. Named after the Italian king Vittorio Emanuele II, it was made of cast iron with glass as the dome of the cloister. However, the irony is that on December 30, 1877, the architect died in the cloister of his own cloister (there was a rumor that he was suicide for being criticized for his poor construction), and even more bizarre, the king was also 10 days later. Passed away one after another. The beautiful arcades of the
promenade are very magnificent. Remember to look for the coat of arms of different Italian cities under the cloister, including Milano, Como, Firenze and Roma.
Remember to find this Torino Bull, and it is said that you will get good luck on its eggs! This is a must for every visitor! ! ! Haha~
If you want to feel the classics of the bones and the fashion of Milan, then go to the promenade of Emanuele II. It is not important whether you are picking up your hands. It is important that you dont need to speak through words. among them.
Close to the main church of Dumo, the other end is the Scala Theatre, so the flow of people and fame can be described as a big explosion, a bunch of luxury goods inside... hurriedly passed...
The name of the gallery comes from the first king after the reunification of Italy. It is located in the prominent position on the north side of the Piazza Duomo in Milan and connects to Scala Square. The northern exit of the arcade is directly accessible, to the Da Vinci Square and La Scala Opera House, and to the south exit to Milan Cathedral. Of course, the most eye-catching is that there are many top luxury fashion shops on both sides of the glass dome arcade. There are also many cafes, restaurants, bookstores and burger shops. I am afraid that no one will not be surprised when they are under the covers. The top corridors converge in the central octagonal space, where art and fashion blend together, standing here looking down at the bull mosaics, which are said to be good for luck (Figure 6).
The light is projected on this round glass roof, reflecting the relief on the wall and the painted bricks on the ground. The light and the shadows are combined, the extra attention is noticeable, the height is high enough, and the golden light shines. Give a feeling of grandeur.
The heel of the right foot is stepping on the genital part of the bull, and turning three times in a clockwise direction, you can make a wish and bless your heart. It is impossible to avoid it.
