After you’ve had your espresso and worked up an appetite contemplating some of the wonderful food shops, take a break and stroll over to the Galleria Subalpina, an elegant glass ceilinged court built in 1896, containing some very fashionable shops.
You would do well to wander into the Galleria Gilibert. It is a delightful place steeped in atmosphere, with its dark wood paneling and old bookcases containing antique books and its walls hung to the ceiling with antique prints and old maps. It looks like a setting for a Victorian novel, Dickens, perhaps. If old books fascinate you, you may never leave.
