If you go to Melbourne you must go to Lygon Street. It is well worth walk from the central city tram stop to experience the Italian flavour of the restaurants. The dining is mostly outdoors and the menus are very extensive.

We were going to avoid Lygon St, and pleased we didn't. Had an absolute awesome time. Adorable shops and eateries. Only problem is no trams and only taxis if they decide to travel there.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
