"First time at Melbourne!!! What a great experience"
We went as a family trip, with my husband, my daughter, son in Law and my grandson! Arrived at the Avalon Airport.
We stayed in a hotel in the center of Melbourne! The Staff was happy to help and so friendly!
Room was clean and the king bed so comfortable!
The room has a kitchenette, dishwasher if you fill like cooking! But for us that was not the case, we went and try the best doughnuts cafe, the best gelato, Spanish food (Tapas, the best sangria i have try in Australia, very good Paella at Simple Spanish), Greek food around the corner, Mexican food, we drive away and visit the 12 Apostle and also went to the best burgers! Melbourne is a city that has lots of things to do and see!!!
Went to Melbourne Museum, that is just 7 minutes away from the hotel!
We took the tram to the Market place... great experience! Fresh fruits, flowers, clothes, belts, hats, soaps, candy and of course Victoria Cafe... beautiful coffee place!
We rent a car but you really don't need it! The tram around the city is free!!!
One of the things I like the most was the people of Melbourne very friendly, communicative, great manners, simplifying: LOVE IT!!!
I will get back soon, to visit new places... we stayed for 4 days and it was not enough!
So much to do and so little time. We walked, and walked, amazed by the beautiful parks, full of nature.
This city is simple, well design, we feel like you are in Europe or a mixture of Europe and USA. Big avenues, green places, like a city that does not sleep!!
