Melbourne has some lovely alleys and little streets where you can meander through and look at quaint shops and cafes and tiny restaurants where you can probably seat half a dozen people.
Some of the alley walls have been painted with graffiti art and are very modern and colourful.
These lanes were first used as rear access to the properties facing the streets. Later they were reinvented and buzz to the sounds and rhythm of the city. Start your walk at Degraves street across the road from the Flinders Street Station.
Get a map from the Melbourne Visitor Centre at Federation Square and don´t miss this walk through the lanes. You won´t regret it!!
