Melbourne is known for its food culture, and much of this is thanks to Lygon Street. It is the hub of the Italian community of the city and has some of the best Italian food outside of Italy.

We were on a cruise ship that docked at Port Melbourne. We decided to walk from the port to Lygon Street, we were not disappointed. Straight away we were imursed in the local scene.

Filled with life and great food; look out in particular for places with freshly made pasta for a real treat. End the night with a delectable gelato.

The food you can come across on Lygon street is usually pretty good. It's quite hard to find parking and I'm not a huge fan of all the restaurant workers trying to force you into their restaurants of a night to eat something

Complex with a domed glass roof built around an old chimney. When we were there it was covered in an artwork which was very colourful. Our main reason was to go to the cinema. Australia gets all the new movies, often before they open in...More

Interesting street with lots of Italian (and other) restaurants. Didn't stop (on a bus tour) but looks worth a separate visit

Great food is available any at one of the restaurants that stretch along this iconic street. Even if you're not hungry, an evening stroll on Lygon Street is a must. Old school, new school, all the schools.

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
