Tour description

This Shore Excursion will take you into the real-life locations of the world-famous film the Godfather. 

Following the path of this famous trilogy, you’ll explore the traditional villages of the setting such as Savoca and Forzà d’Agro’ as well as the beautiful ancient town of Taormina in the heart of Sicily.


Starting with our professional meet and greet service from Messina port, you'll head into the Sicilian countryside to discover the villages that were the backdrop of the famous Mafia themed films. The main point that fans will recall is the town of Savoca and the recognisable Vitelli bar. Located along the eastern coast hills of Sicily, the pretty town also offers panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.


Before heading to the tantalisingly beautiful Taormina, you'll make a couple more stops in the medieval movie set towns of both Forza d'agrò and Castelmola. Upon the first stop, you'll notice many traditional buildings of Sicily that are connected by narrow stone paved streets leading to the small main square. Castelmola is also a great place to see the surrounding sea view while discovering the villages Duomo, the square of Sant’Antonio and two amazing churches, the Church of San Giorgio and the Church of the Annunziata.


You will discover the gem town of Taormina next. Perched on a cliff, it offers views of the surrounding bright blue sea and the very unique "Isola Bella" that is almost connect to the mainland. The town itself is home to one of the most impressive Greek Theatres in the country and is even regularly used a the venue for modern day shows.


Your personal driving guide will give you an insight of the local food on offer too before returning you to the port of Messina.
