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.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Naples itinerary 5 days.

Nice landmark but needs lots of restoration work to keep it safe and looking good. Some of it is shut off because some of the roof fell down. (Oct 2018) Has a few nice high street shops inside, and a McDonald's. Good to get out of the weather.
This building looks incredible from the inside. Quite a few of the shops inside are boarded up but there are a few options for coffee and a local pastry. There is also a McDonald's if that is your thing. A good place to stop for 30 minutes and take a breather!
It is being renovated so I believe it is going to be better when they finish the works. There is a Mac Donalds inside and some stores that I would not think they would be inside an upscale gallery. But that's also part of its magic. And I really enjoyed my hambúrguer.
Fantastic architecture. Not as many shops as you'd think. Lots of street traders and quite a few beggars, even coming up to the table while we relaxed with a coffee and lemon cake
Nice old shopping arcade, off the Via Toledo. Fantastic glass ceiling. Has a good coffee shop, and a good ice cream shop as well. There's a shop here to buy trip tickets (we bought a 3 day Arte Card here, which allows travel around the region, and entry to tourist attractions such as Pompeii). Also a post office, and a Macdonald's.
