Wear comfortable walking shoes and meet your foodie guide at the corner of Elgin and Lygon Streets in Melbourne’s leafy Carlton neighborhood. Best known as the heart of the city's Little Italy district, Lygon Street boasts a rich European history and many culinary gems tucked among the pizza-and-pasta tourist traps — if you know where to look.
Let your guide take you behind the scenes at some of Lygon’s best eateries to meet proprietors, learn the stories behind the food, and, of course, sample plenty of delicious fare. Take a kitchen tour at a renowned Italian pasticceria and get a lesson in gourmet sausages and spreads at Melbourne’s only traditional French charcuterie. Taste the of best that each establishment has to offer, such as artisan cheeses, cured meats, savory dips, and fresh-baked breads.
