  • To Melrose Avenue we have arrived at the city bus 10/48, which runs along the street. On this street, stretching nearly two kilometers lots of good shops. We liked the clothing collection by Marc Jacobs, New York Speed, But in addition, here are selling fashion jewelry, books, souvenirs, flowers, cosmetics, antiques. Snack on Melrose Avenue can be found in the numerous restaurants and cafes. We liked the food and service at Providence.
