Gourmet Mediterranean Cruise a feast for the senses

Travelrite International’s 2015 Gourmet Cruise of the Mediterranean, hosted by Australian home-cook hero Lyndey Milan, promises a profusion of gastronomic delights on its spectacular September sojourn through Italy, Greece and Turkey.

From the bustling food markets of Rome, to limoncello and gelato tasting in Sorrento, to a private cooking demonstration in a historic Tuscan castle, this unique Mediterranean tour is a degustation feast for the senses.

Dine at local restaurants, sample wine at spectacular vineyards, browse in regional specialty shops and colourful delicatessens, and consolidate your newly-awakened palate with cooking demonstrations at sea during your luxury Mediterranean cruise.
