Milan is Mecca of Fashion, and this Idea Comes to Life when you walk around in Milan. Every Corner Depicts Style and Each Street is not less than a Runway. Being Hometown of Many Top Notch Designer Brands, This City Breaths Fashion!

But Do you Know that Milan has the World’s Oldest Shopping Mall? Completely Justified!

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is a historic sight and architectural gem that non-shoppers will want to see, too. The Place is Always Buzzing, Creating a Feel of non-Stop Fiesta.

Here are Few Interesting Facts about it:

It is one of the Landmarks of the City so Missing it Out is Nearly Impossible but there are few Things to Keep in mind Before Visiting it

  • Entry is Free
  • If You Want to Absorb the Beauty of the Architect, better to Go After Sunset or Early Morning
  • If You are Planning to Have Meal at One of the Restaurants Inside the Mall, Either Book Your Table Before Hand or Keep Margin of at least 30-40 Minutes. Because The Restaurants are Full Most of the Time

We Visited the Place Right after Sunrise to Take Some Nice Shots of the Place Without Any Disturbance. managed to Take a Nice Photo Without Any Human in the Bcakground. I Wanted to Show Off my Gucci Belt that i Bought from Oldest Gucci Store in Mall as Souvenir. And Opted for a Subtle Cotton Shirt Dress, added Accessories from the Shops on Each Corner of the Galleria: Louis Vuitton Bag, Prada Sunnies and Dior Ear Studs.

I’ll Be Back Soon With More on Milan, Keep Visiting! Ciao!
