The Godfather and Taormina from Messina port; Savoca, Forza D’agro and Taormina.
A delightful day trip to the fascinating town of Savoca ( less than 1500 people) to see st. Lucy church which was used by Coppola in the Godfather part one in 1972 and the Vitelli bar, also used in the movie.
A must from the bar is the famous delicious lemon granita.
Afterwards, on request, it is possible to visit the old Convent of Capuchins where the mummies are kept.
Then a scenic drive to Forza D’Agro’ one of the most charming medieval town of Italy.
Here we will walk together through the village to show you where some scenes of the second and third Godfather one were filmed,
letting you enjoy the culture and traditions of local life.
We then continue to the breathtaking town of Taormina where you will have time on your own; lunch, shopping, sightseeing. etc..
Then continuing to Taormina, which is a hill-village with a glossy sheen of glamour.
As well as the famed Greek-Roman Theatre (Admission Fee: not included), there are several minor sites to be discovered around Taormina.
The attractive principal thoroughfare,
Corso Umberto is pedestrian and ideal for strolling and window-shopping .
Has a huge range of bars, cafes and restaurants where you can while away pleasant hours while admiring the views.
Taormina has two important gates: Porta Messina (Messina Gate) & Porta Catania (Catania Gate). Between the two gates there is an important street under the name of CORSO UMBERTO STREET. The Corso Umberto Street is the core of the town rich of bar, shops, pottery and more.
