Caffè Baratti & Milano was full and the store at the entrance only sold 15euro or more packs of chocolates, down the mall is a store where you can pick individual chocolates and sells them by weight -- unless you only select two and they he says 2euro without weighing them. I should have walked away. It is fine, but our local stores carry similar products.

Lovely building that was designed in the 1800's and has some terrific architecture. Has much more to it than modern shopping arcades. We didn't look in any shops, just marvelled at the inside!

Not much to be said. It is an utterly beautiful and for me personally, magical place in a way. A testament to the Italian knowledge of what beauty is.

Located in the historic center of the city, this Renaissance Revival-style building was completed in 1874. It is reminiscent of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. The design is the same, although the Milan Galleria is better known and is more ambitious. Named after the bank that financed its creation, this is an attractive shopping area, with lots of plants, flowers and charming balconies. The stylish use of marble, glass and iron makes for a classical, late 19th century building. In addition to shops, you will also find Turin's oldest movie theater, an elegant restaurant and a classical cafe. Around Christmas, the entire Galleria is decorated with festive lights. It is quite a sight.

The galleria is a little run down, there is nowhere to sit, not much to see, one wonders whether the upper floors are still functioning. It was not easy to find and not sure it is worth paying a visit.

Do not miss this little beautiful gallery, designed by Pietro Carrera in 1873. It is located between Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto and is characterised by a wide and luminous fifty-meter long saloon, fourteen wide, enriched by a remarkable eclectic decorative apparatus that combines elements in Renaissance and Baroque style.

After walking through the Galleria several times we spotted a plaque commemorating Friedrich Nietzsche on an outer wall. Nietzsche lived in two rooms on the second floor, diagonally across from the Cinema Romano. This was his residence at the time he was declared mad. Amazing discovery, and the galleria is worthy of a visit simply for the ornate decoration and location.

Galleria Subalpina designed by Pietro Carrera is an elegant arcade with iron and glass roof in 1873 which opened 30th September 1874. The structure is a typical nineteenth-century model of urban shopping area inspired by the typical Parisian passages and intended for the middle-class entertainment. It owes its name to the Industrial Bank Subalpina who assumed the burden of the building. The gallery, located between Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto, features decorative elements in both Baroque and Renaissance style, the work of sculptor Pietro Rubino. Length of the visit is about 15 minutes.

Here the passage of time seems to be repelled by the enchanting structure. The Subalpine Industry Gallery, known by the simple name of Subalpine Gallery, is and was one of the most important city symbols. Designed by Pietro Carrera at the end of the 19th century, it represents the classic model of a shopping mall on the model of those in Paris. It was the third gallery, after the Umberto I and the Natta (which no longer exists, destroyed in 1922). It joins Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto. Luxurious nineteenth-century atmosphere thanks to Renaissance inserts and Baroque culture. Various works by Pietro Rubino. Another iconic and prestigious place in Turin, Caffè Baratti & Milano, is located in these environments. Not to be missed
