Galleria Principe di Napoli
Designed in 1869 by architects Nicola Breglia and Giovanni De Novellis, this ornate shopping gallery filled with stylish boutiques was built between 1876 and 1883 as part of planned improvements to Via Fosse del Grano. The cast-iron and glass roof and solid masonry of the walls graced with splendid stucco decorations are a masterful combination of modern and traditional construction techniques. The gallery opens out onto Via Pessina, Via Broggia and the square in front of the National Museum.

If you like designer labels, Lacoste, Armani Jeans etc. then there are plenty of stores in the Galleria Umberto including a Lacoste.
