"Melbourne's little Italy - a great spot to live"

Famous for its bustling stretch of Italian cafés and fine foods, Lygon Street is a popular dining area in Melbourne.

Situated to the immediate north of the CBD, Lygon Street attracts a continual stream of diners and those looking for some nightlife. Live near here, and you'll never go hungry again!

The surrounding areas offer some lovely homes, and high density apartment style living. It is also close to two of Melbourne's universities, so it is a good spot for students. Inexpensive rental accommodation can be found.

Accessing the CBD is easy from here - trams are frequent and taxis are quite cheap.

"Little Italy in Melbourne"

I love Lygon St. It is so close to the city, within walking distance and has some real character. There are lots of Italian restaurants ranging from Pizza houses like Totos and Pappa Ginos to the more upmarket Brunettis. They also have a great selection of Thai restaurants like Lemongrass which are at the end closer to the city. Lygon can get very busy at times and parking is not that great but it all adds to the excitement of the area. A block away you have some very nice apartments ranging from older Victorian style to more modern (built early 2000's) designs. My wife had our babyat the Royal Womens hospital which is only a block away and having spent a week in the area would love to live here.
