This is truly a magnificent structure; in fact, I did not realize its true age (completed c 1891) and due to the impressive engineering, I thought it was of more recent origin. We almost walked past this beauty, but just caught a glimpse of the interior that was partially hidden at street level by all the ongoing restoration and cleaning... More

We were in the neighborhood so we decided to stop in for a look. The Galleria is lovely. It is reminiscent of the Galleria in Milano just smaller. It is filled with wonderful details. Look closely so that you don't miss anything. The Galleria was undergoing some restoration when we were there in late October so, keep that in mind.... More

Popped by here due to a love of architecture and mosaics (not to shop). A beautiful place that you can wander in for free and take photos. It's good to see that they are doing some renovation work here to protect the building for the future, its just a shame scaffolding doesn't photo so well!

Beautiful place to visit filled with shops and coffee bars. The ceiling and walls are wonderfully worked and worth admiring. We only walked thru the Galleria, since we could not visit the last trrip to Naples. Worth a walk thru

We first saw it when passing teatro san carlo but then on our way up Toledo we saw the interior and had to go in. This architectural beauty is home to some shops and cafés but it is the interior decor which puts you in awe. A marvellous work of art.

Beautiful glass domed shopping area with nicely painted interior facades. Also, nice mosaics on the floor. Unless you're in to shopping here, just do a quick pop-in and continue on your way. It's definitely worth a short stop.

This gallery is beautiful the glass dome is amazing. There are mosaic on the floor at the centre depicting the signs of the zodiac. At the moment they are cleaning the inside it is very interesting to see how dirty it had become. It will look even more amazing when all the work is done. There is cake shop at... More

As we saw at the times in Milano the great Gallery of Vittorio Emanuele II,that is, the public shopping gallery, we encountered ourselves with the similar edifice here in Naples. It is located across the very important traffic artery, i.e. Via Vittorio Emanuele II, from the Teatro di San Carlo. There are many of modern architectural elements used for building... More
