'The Godfather' Movie Tour from Taormina
From US$40,50
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Visit the real-life locations in those iconic scenes from ‘The Godfather’ during this coach tour of filming locations from Taormina or the province of Messina. There is a Sicilian town called Corleone, but the movies weren’t filmed there. Instead, the towns of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò set the scene. See the famous Bar Vitelli, among other places you’ll recognize from the films, while your guide tells stories about the movies and Sicily.
What to Expect
Your tour begins in either Taormina or elsewhere in Messina province, where you’ll be picked up by your guide in an air-conditioned coach for this 4-hour Godfather tour.
When Francis Ford Coppola began work on filming his classic, The Godfather, he realized he couldn’t use the actual town in which the books are set - Corleone, Sicily. By the early 1970s, Corleone was too modern-looking to serve as the historic place of the novels. Instead, producers decided to use the towns of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò near Taormina.
Savoca is your first stop. Visit the pretty Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Convent of the Frati Minori Cappuccini, where you can even explore the underground crypt. Godfather aficionados will instantly recognize Bar Vitelli, where Michael Corleone told Apollonia’s father of his intention to marry his daughter.
Enjoy a half-hour to explore Savoca at your leisure, perhaps even to have a snack or drink (own expense) at the Bar Vitelli, before boarding the coach again to go to Forzà d'Agrò.
Many scenes of village life were filmed in Forzà d'Agrò, with its cobblestone streets and traditional houses. You may also recognize the church that features in both The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II. Here, too, you have some time to explore the town on your own before getting back on the coach for the trip back to your starting point in Taormina or Messina province.
