What You Can Expect

'The Godfather' Movie Tour from Taormina

See movie sights from 'The Godfather' on a tour of Sicily

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.

This was a very good tour, with a guide who really knew her stuff. We went to two locations and had long walks around each, with the guide keeping us informed of various interesting facts along the way. This was our first tour of our holiday and was a great introduction to the lovely villages around the Taormina area.

Really loved this tour. It is a must do. The drive up to the villages is a bit scarey but well worth it. People in the villages were so friendly and the atmosphere was great.

Initially a bit apprehensive about booking with Viator. Assured by the fact that it was a TripAdvisor Company. A bit concerned that it didn't seem to be a local company but I needn't have been. Contacted the helpline re pick-up location and got excellent help and information.
Arrived at pickup location and coach air conditioned as promised with an excellent charismatic guide and we were off.
The villages of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò are beautiful and the whole tour is a must for Godfather fans. Savoca remains unchanged since the movie was made here some 44 years ago 1972 and it was great to re-watch the movie when we came home and compare our holiday snaps with the scenes form the movie.
Highly recommended.
