Walking is by far the best way to discover Melbourne. Distances are not as impossible as one may think, and public transportation works perfectly. Trains and subway connect the city in a very efficient way. More over, trams are a cheap, punctual, clean, and fast way to discover the city.

Sandra and I have been walking all day long as we were looking for some local shops. However, when I was asked to join a tour to discover some secret and less beaten spots of the city I was more than happy to join it. I joined the tour with Sarah – my guide – and a couple of guys from California. This tour was part of Melbourne’s Original Laneway Walk – an agency that offers tours to discover less touristic areas of the city; a real opportunity to experience what real Melbourne-siders love. Cafes, hot spots, hidden shops, secret roads, and much more. The Melbourne Hidden Secrets Lanes and Arcades Tour lasts about 4 hours. It starts around 9.45 and it includes some morning snacks and lunch.

 

Here come a small list and some pictures of some interesting places that I have visited during my tour.
