The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
Considered one of the sites of Milanese luxury shopping, along with Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II hosts many prestigious labels and brand shops, famous cafés and restaurants.
a well-known tradition says: If one wishes to return to Milan, you have to spin with your heel on the mosaic bull’s “attributes” on the pavement of the Galleria’s splendid central octagon. Once a gesture to ward off evil, it has become part of the Milanese tradition and has such a following that a deep hole has formed in the bull.
