Description

Lovers of the Godfather movies will recognize the pretty hillside villages of Savoca and Forza D'Agrò where Francis Ford Coppola filmed some of the immortal scenes of the trilogy. This tour is well worth it if you love this movie like most people, but even if you aren't a fan, this tour is a fascinating way to visit these unspoiled and typical Sicilian hill towns - a real insight into the island and the heart of its people.

Just as you enter in Savoca you will see the ‘Bar Vitelli' with its splendid terrace. Everything here is just like in the movie: the table where Michael discusses his proposed marriage to Apollonia with her father, the door curtains, and even the lovely stroll along the village's main street that from the bar, leading up to the church where the scene of the wedding between Apollonia and Michael was shot. A stop for a lemon granita at Bar Vitelli is a must for any visitor in town. It is still run by the family who owned it at the time of filming and exhibits a collection of photos taken when Francis Ford Coppola shot some scenes of The Godfather II. We also leave you time to explore further and really soak up the atmosphere of this hidden, not-for-tourists Sicilian hilltown.

More sights to see are located at the nearby hill town of Forza D'Agrò, where Al Pacino showed Diane Keaton the house where his father was born and where Vito escapes to the US hotly pursued by Don Ciccio's men. Forza d'Agrò is a charming little village which overlooks the Arab-Norman castle of Capo Sant'Alessio. It was featured as the backdrop in a number of movies of which the most popular is the Godfather trilogy. Even here, we will enjoy a walking tour through the old medieval historic center. From the central piazza, dramatic steps and a crumbling arch lead to a beautiful church where some scenes of Godfather III were shot. The ancient hill-top town layout is still as it has been since the middle ages, a warren of narrow streets and tiny houses leading up to the ruined castle. The view from the village looking out over the surroundings is amazing.
