Melbourne’s little piece of Italy, Lygon St. is clad with exquisite family owned Italian restaurants, the best gelato in the city and a great selection of shops to match. This lively street never seems to sleep, always buzzing with people going out for that freshly brewed coffee and a shop during the day, or a romantic Italian dinner at night. Lying on the outskirts of Melbourne’s CBD, Lygon Street is the perfect vibrant setting for escaping the high-rises and getting some retail therapy.
Home to all the shopping favourites; Sportsgirl, Countryroad and French Connection to name a few, Lygon street style varies from corporate chic to quirky and laidback. Even on the steaming hot summer days, style is still evident, from flowy skirts and bright shirts to silk camisoles and a Melbourne favourite, the playsuit.
If all that browsing around gives you a sweet craving, you’ve come to the right place. Several gelato shops, frozen yoghurt and patisseries are all a few steps away and are guaranteed to satisfy that sweet tooth and top off a successful day of shopping in Melbourne.
