Melbourne’s youthful vitality, enthusiasm for live music, café culture and impeccable fashion rivals even the most sophisticated European destinations. Australia’s ‘second city’ has numerous fantastic bars, restaurants and boutiques hidden amidst its narrow lanes. You’ll need plenty of energy and a good pair of walking shoes to discover all the local hidden gems, so get some rest during your flight to Melbourne with help from Alitalia’s extra-comfort seats.
If you’re traveling to Melbourne for the first time, head straight for the Eureka Skydeck 88. This aptly named observation deck on the 88th floor of the Eureka Tower offers phenomenal panoramic views of the city and can be a great way to acquaint yourself with your surroundings. Stroll down Degraves Street, a distinctly European-themed lane full to bursting with cafés sporting artisan baristas and intricate Italian-styled facades.
Invest in a full-day tram pass, as public transportation is by far the best way to get around the city. Whether you book your tickets to Melbourne with Alitalia for winter, summer, spring or fall, be sure to pack adaptable clothing. The weather in the region can be unpredictable, and wearing layers is a great way to stay comfortable.
