    A beautiful interior space
    Invariably people are going to compare this building to one in Milan, which it resembles. It's not as elegant, and some of the stores are vacant. Those that are there include a McDonalds--if that gives you an idea. However, it is a beautiful interior space, that contains one of the finest bakeries for the selling of Neapolitan pastries: Sfogliatelle Mary. Free to enter.

    Nice shopping arcade
    An impressive building, quite centrally located near the Plaza del Plebiscito (which is really dirty and full of grafiti) . Don't forget to look at the mosaics on the floor. The galleria has a few very nice shops, but more and more souvenir shops and cheap restaurants have found their way here.

    Lovely architecture but………
    The architecture of Galleria Umberto I bears uncanny resemblance to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, which is not surprising given that both arcades were constructed around the late 19th century. Located across from the San Carlo opera house within a short walk from Piazza del Plebiscito, this cross -shaped structure surmounted by a huge glass dome at the centre is majestically impressive, but no similar superlatives can be said of the range of shops tenanting this shopping arcade. Unlike its Milan cousin who fills the arcade with luxury branded shop, the shops here are much to be desired and some have even closed for business. Good only for a quick stopover to admire the building and snap a few photos.

    Stunning architecture
    Stunning building but that's about it. I was very early here before it had been cleaned up from the night before. Rubbish everywhere, urine smell, homeless people sleeping rough. By the time the high class shops were opening the place had been cleaned - you would not have known.

    Galleria Umberto I is a public shopping gallery in Naples
    Galleria Umberto I is a public shopping gallery in Naples, southern Italy. It is located directly across from the San Carlo opera house. It was built between 1887 and 1890, and was the cornerstone in the decades-long rebuilding of Naples —called the risanamento .... (lit. "making healthy again").....—that lasted until World War I. It was designed in the Stile Umbertino by Emanuele Rocco, who employed modern architectural elements reminiscent of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. The Galleria was named after Umberto I, King of Italy at the time of construction...।....

Beautiful building and magnificent.
The glass dome and the flooring are amazing.
There are not many shops there, but definitely you can enjoy an espresso shot ant one of the cafes there. Great experience!

The shopping was so-so, but the venue is definitely worth a trip. Such a lovely setting. We had looked up the hours of operation before going. They were erratic, But, a friend assured us it was always open, which we discovered to be the case.

It was a nice place to visit. Reminds me a bit of Milan, similar place. Also it’s cool that near you can see other beautiful historical places. Check some shops and have a bite.

Anyone who enjoys photography will love the architecture and amazing glass dome. Now a shopping centre (built in the late 1800's) with some tacky souvenir shops and cafes, the key is to look up (and straight down to see the mosaics on the floor.
