Weekly Photo: Milan’s Galleria in Photos


Like the Statue of Liberty in New York City and the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is Milan, Italy’s quintessential photo opportunity.

Galleria Milan (1)

The Galleria is Italy’s oldest shopping mall, and probably the most famous in the world. It features a cross-shaped layout canopied under a four-story arcade roof of glass panes. It is also a main pedestrian thoroughfare, connecting the Piazza del Duomo, where the Milan Cathedral stands, to the Piazza della Scala.

These photos were taken by my friends and me during our Great Northern Italy Adventure, on December 27, 2012. If you think the photos are decent, then Paolo, Alessandra, or Joseph probably captured them; if you find them to be hideous and nauseating, then I might have taken that one 😉

Christian "Krzysiek" Eilers is a twenty-something who constantly likes to look up the next flight out of JFK. His life goal is to visit every country in the world; as a young adult working full-time, he often settles on visiting the near countries of Central and South America and the Caribbean, knocking these off the list as it is less of a financial strain than Europe or Asia. Caffeine is his vice, and if he doesn't have a coffee in his hands, then it's probably a green tea. A native of New York City, when he is not traveling, he can find an abundance of cultural influences right in his own city, enough to keep him satisfied until the next country's beckon cannot be ignored any longer. He holds a cigarette in one hand while monitoring his Fitbit's heart rate with the other.
