From Naples Cruise Terminal after visiting Castel Nuovo you can continue walking for about 5 minutes and you arrive at this astonishing shopping centre with a Latin Cross layout. The Gallaria umberto I was opened in 1890 and named in honour of the King of Italy who was assassinated.The longer part of this cross is 138 metres and the shorter... More

Free entry and photography allowed. Interesting architectural site on the Via Toledo ... currently under repairs so there is a fair bit of scaffolding there - but you can still get a good idea of the beauty of the building and the glass dome. Not very smart shops to tempt you into retail therapy nor to linger for lunch -... More

It is a beautiful building. It has lots of stores and parts of it were still under maintenance. Worth visiting if you happen to be in the area, have a look at the glass ceiling and the statues on the arches.

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.
