Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II built from 1865 and 1877 is one of the oldest shopping malls of the world. Designed by Giuseppe Mengoni who died the tragic way of falling from the roof of the one galleria he had built.

And what a view! The roofs of Milan and all the (little) details of the Duomo. I almost expected all the creatures (the gargoyles) to come alive like in a movie!
