Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

I have the impression Milan is more famous for being the main industrial, commercial and financial centre of Italy, rather than for its landmarks (compared to Rome, Florence, Pisa or Venezia), but between la piazza del duomo and la piazza della scala you can find the remarkable one: the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, named after the first king of Italy. This is not only is one of the world's oldest shopping malls, but it's probably the most beautiful one. Once you enter the shopping arcades you can't stop looking at the amazing structures of the ceiling and during the night, with the lighting it is even more impressive. Last weekend we enjoyed a short city break in Milano and this place was definitively one of the highlights.
