They say if you know where to look, you can read the past in the city. When it comes to the city of Melbourne, the Hellenic Museum has you covered.

This weekend, on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 December, locals and travellers alike have the opportunity to take an insightful, historical tour with storyteller Dale Campisi.

The author of travel and city guides Melbourne Precincts and Melbourne Villages will take each group on a tour through the CBD, starting from Sean Godsell’s fully- automated, blossoming 2014 MPavilion located at the Hellenic Museum, through to the AL_A’s 2015 MPavilion in Queen Victoria Gardens.

Along the way, the tour guide will inform you of characters and events that make up Melbourne’s exciting history.

The tours will begin at the Hellenic Museum at 4.00 pm on Saturday and Sunday, and will take approximately two hours.

Be sure to plan an early arrival so as to not miss the opportunity of a pre-tour roam through the museum, which in itself has a rich history.

This is a free event, but bookings are essential as numbers are limited. For more information, visit
