Between Piazza Duomo and the Teatro alla Scala - the Scala Opera House - is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
, one of the temples to Milanese luxury. Built in the second half of the eighteenth century, it only took three years to complete. Under its high domed roof you can lose yourself enjoying the shop windows of the most fashionable shops
or sit at one of the little tables of the city’s best-known coffee shops and restaurants
. To get a good aerial view of Milan, take one of the lifts up to the Galleria’s rooftop.
