About Galleria Umberto I, Naples
Shop in style. This late 19th century Art Nouveau shopping gallery was imagined to be a place of commerce and social gathering - and it succeeded! The elegant facade welcomes you into a covered shopping with a marble floor. But it’s only when you glance up and see the iron and glass vaulted ceiling 56 metres above your head that you actually gasp with appreciation. Then you begin to notice the paintings, the sculptures, and the mosaics. The shops on offer are standard - Sephora, Zara, Sisley, a movie theatre. The best time to visit is in the evening, when the place lights up and livens up. IT’s a good place to people watch.

Galleria Umberto I, Naples Reviews - Write a Review
The gallery is one of the best architectural summary of what Naples actually is. It clearly draws on those liberty aesthetic principles that spread in Europe in the first decades of the 20th century, representing the city's international aspirations and giving great pride to its inhabitants. However, as a quick comparison with its twin in Milan highlights, the lack of adequate maintenance combined with the proximity to the sea progressively damaged the structure - which is currently undergoing much needed adjustments - reflecting the state of abandon in which the South of Italy nowadays floats.
Go for the beautiful, vast space. The historic façades and tiling on the floor of this covered shopping gallery are impressive. Would be very romantic in the rain.
A beautiful and ornate mall well worth visiting if you want to escape the bustling Naples streets. There's a range of good quality shops, bars and restaurants to give you a few hours pleasure here. What attracted us most however is the glorious architecture made up of ceramic and plasterwork all holding up an enormous wrought iron and glass ceiling. All this is currently being renovated and it's amazing to see the finished parts that clearly show off the former splendor of this beautiful building. Well worth a visit.
Wonderful glass structure and floor mosaics. Not much of a shopping centre as at September 2017 as much is closed with scaffolding that may lead to renewal of parts. If this were in Milan or Rome it would be as full of luxurious shops an opulent passers by as much as sight seers.
Beautiful architecture but the place is pretty dead, the shops are closed or empty while commerce boils right outside the galleria. Small shop with the best babas in the city right at the exit
