Highline Galleria: Walking across the Rooftops of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele
Starting from May 2015 it is possible to access the walkway of the famous Galleria, one of the world’s oldest shopping malls and a pure symbol of the City.
The new attraction’s name is “Highline Galleria”. After ascending to the upper spaces via two lifts and crossing a terrace, it will be possible to access the walkway, admire the city’s rooftops, the Duomo spires and the Milan’s skyline.
At the end of the visit, an external lift located in the courtyard will take visitors back down and out through the exit in via Silvio Pellico 8.
The Galleria was designed and built by Giuseppe Mengoni between 1961 and 1877 and named after Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of the Kingdom of Italy.
