Birth Place of Pizza

Carlton is said to be Melbourne birthplace of pizza and Australia’s first espresso machine so it’s no wonder it’s been dubbed “little Italy”. Lively Lygon Street and surrounds abound with award-winning restaurants, expansive coffee, cake shops and delicious gelateria. If you have an appetite for fashion and style, you’ll find everything from individual designer names, vintage treasures and handmade shoes to cool and quirky giftware.
