Introduzione

Melbourne, one of the ‘world’s most liveable cities’, is located in the southeast corner of the Australian state of Victoria. It is generally regarded as a more sophisticated counterpart to Sydney.
Melbourne is located at the apex of one of the world’s largest natural bays, Port Philip Bay, and enjoys a variety of weather conditions throughout the year. There are four distinct seasons free of extremes and the weather is notoriously changeable; it is said that one can sometimes experience all four seasons in the course of one day!
Melbourne is Australia’s second-most populous city, with 3.7 million residents. It was originally founded in 1835 as a pastoral settlement but has transformed into a booming, vibrant, cosmopolitan metropolis. It is widely renowned for its patronage of the arts and its unique culture.

Overall Guide : The first stop for visitors to the city should be the convenient Melbourne Visitor Centre at Federation Square—which is located opposite the iconic Flinders Street Station—for information on shopping, attractions and local events. Melbourne is home to some stunning examples of... more Victorian architecture, such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, World Heritage Royal Exhibition Building and Flinders Street Station. The city is also host to one of the world’s largest tram networks; a popular tourist activity is a ride on the free City Circle Tram, which takes visitors on a tour of the city’s prominent areas. Melbourne is a haven for sports fans and is widely acknowledged as Australia’s sporting capital. It is host to several major tennis, motor sport, Australian rules football and cricket sporting events every year. Gambling is also a popular activity in Melbourne, with the Crown Casino located on the south bank of the Yarra River.

Overall Guide : Melbourne is a new world gem. It's by no coincidence that it has earned top place as the most liveble city in the world. In Melbourne there are a lot of activities going on simultanously. So if you're in Australia... more and missing Europe's culture, this is "the place to be". Melbourne is also surrounded by beautiful countryside and impressive National Parks which is an added plus.

Overall Guide : It's a great city ... A word of advice? You have to try a coffee from Pellegrini's: it's a very Italian 60's style cafe (it's always been that way). Coffee and simply delicious meals. A 'must' for those visiting Melbourne.
