Fitzroy & Carlton
Stop 16 – Kay Street / Nicholson Street
Start at the weekend Rose St. Artist's Market. Rummage through stalls packed with homewares, accessories, jewellery and more, where you'll find artistic and design gems unique to Melbourne. Feeling a bit peckish? The Fitzroy Mills Market is right next door, home to some of the best in artisan food, drink and products, grown and crafted by local producers – on Saturdays.
Wander over to Brunswick Street, a popular strip that guarantees interesting shopping, eating and people watching. Take in the spectacular view of the city from the many rooftop bars in the area – we like Naked For Satan Rooftop, the Provincial Hotel and Upside Rooftop and Bar.
Alternatively, head west over to Lygon Street to sample the best of Melbourne's Italian precinct. Head to the Carlton Wine Room for a vino and sit-down snack, or try Agostino and Johnny's Green Room for pasta, spritzes and rooftop views.
Once you've wined and dined, hop back on the 96 tram to continue your journey south towards the city.
