Melbourne's lovely laneways are some of the many things that give Melbourne its unique personality. A major one for your humble blogger is the laneways. They simply seduce the senses… the waft of fine coffee and savoury or sweet delights… the buzz of conversation, some just friendly chatter, some a serious exchange of thoughts and ideas… the shops, the movement, the chaos and quiet charm… sometimes they are passageways, sometimes the actual destination… style and fashion flow through these little city arteries with a pulse… and all seems right with the world.
There's no better base to explore Melbourne than Rydges in Exhibition Street, right in the heart of the CBD.
