Melbourne's Little Italy

Updated: May 30, 2019

Have you ever been to Italy? I've been several times, but the painfully long plane trip just about killed me.

I can hardly believe how lucky Melbournians are with a ‘Little Italy’ right on our doorstep.

It’s so much fun exploring the streets of Carlton and I’m lucky I can do it every weekday.

Today I've been checking out the vast range of cafe and restaurant fit-outs on Lygon St.

It’s like an architect’s playground.

You can find elegant Roman aesthetic with marble and mosaics, through to contemporary industrial designs- compelling to the eye with their simplicity and crisp lines.

Cranes are dotted about everywhere, teasing the passer-by with more hospitality venues on their way, which are continually transforming the heart of Carlton.

That's enough from me for now, I need to go and order a delicious pizza for lunch. Hmm, today I’ll get one topped with freshly sliced sweet tomatoes, with a sprinkling of fragrant, finely chopped basil, with just a drizzle of olive oil on top to finish it off. Mangiamo!
