Experience the history of the Sicilian past and roam through enchanting small villages on a tour that will take your through the iconic locations of Francis Ford Coppola’s masterpiece “The Godfather”. Be fascinated by the lights, colours, traditions and legends of our beautiful island and learn about the written and unwritten rules that have made our history.
The Godfather tour starts at the Castle of the Slaves (Castello degli Schiavi) in Fiumefreddo, where you can retrace the steps of young Michael Corleone’s stay in Sicily. An enchanting castle situated on a suggestive route that leads to the sea and featuring striking Baroque architecture from the 1700s, it was chosen by Coppola as a key filming location to be the Corleone’s Villa.
We will then bring you to Savoca, an old hilltop village near Taormina, where you can visit the famous Bar Vitelli where young Michael – played by Al Pacino – asked his future father in law permission to marry his beautiful young daughter Apollonia. Going through the quiet alleyways of this almost abandoned village, we’ll arrive at the church where the young godfather got married.
