Galleria Vittorio The Galleria has now evolved into one of the finest of shopping malls in the nation. It is actually a never-ending arcade that houses many stores, mini-bars and restaurants.

The cross-shape of the Galleria can be used as a way of walking over to the Duomo and visiting other smaller markets and sites that are found near the Piazza del Duomo.
