The Galleria Highline, the new promenade overlooking the crystal roof of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in the heart of Milan, offers a completely new perspective on Milan's true “living room” and the city skyline. Discover a side of Milan’s famous monument and icon of the city previously unknown not only to visitors but also to the Milanese.

Enjoy the splendid panorama over the historic buildings of the center, the Duomo and the Scala, the Velasca Tower as well as over Porta Nuova skyscrapers - from a height of 40 meters/131 feet. Looking down you have a close look at the beautiful stained glass windows of the gallery and the dome above the Octagon.

Opened in May 2015, 150 years after the opening of the gallery, it is an aerial walkway placed about 3 feet above the original one, which was once used for the maintenance of the glass roof of the Galleria. The new Highline is twice as wide and equipped with protection on the sides to allow safe passage, even with children. The walkway is 250 meters / 820 feet long and covers a surface of 550 square meters (close to 660 square yards), and has a series of terraces to stop and enjoy the rooftop spectacle, to treat yourself to a selfie and to read the history of the gallery on the panels placed all around. Here, you have the option to download interactive videos about the development of Milan to your smartphone.

The glass and cast iron Galleria Vittorio Emanuele was built during the Belle Époque, and is a monument that inspired the Eiffel Tower in 1889 and the Crystal Palace in London in 1851.

The legendary colony of black cats that lives on this rooftop is behind the name of the Pizzeria-Grill I 12 Gatti. The Highline walkways ends at the terrace of this restaurant - why not enjoy a delicious wood - fired oven pizza here? Alternatively, the gallery also offers the terrace space Duomo 21 (on the first floor), a restaurant & lounge bar with spectacular views of the Cathedral Square, and Enoteca Duomo 21 (second floor) with over 7,000 wine labels from all over Italy. The jewel of the crown is the restaurant Pavarotti, dedicated to one of the greatest masters of Italian opera and renowned gourmet lover of the cuisine of Emilia Romagna, his birth region. In this museum-restaurant, you can discover more about the life of the famous tenor, as well as products of the Emilia Romagna gastronomy. The restaurant contains Pavarotti memorabilia, such as a black tuxedo, scarves, and photographs of some concerts in the most famous theaters in the world.
