What to expect

A must for the lovers of 'The Godfather' is undoubtedly the ancient village of Savoca (40 km away from Messina) which rises up on a hill, about 300 mt on the sea level between the rivers Agrò and Savoca. In 1972, some of the scenes from the famous film 'The Godfather' were shot here by Francis Ford Coppola with famous actors such as Al Pacino and Marlon Brando. In the film you can see the church of St. Nicholas, the streets of the historic centre and the palace Trimarchi where the Bar Vitelli, mentioned in the novel written by Mario Puzo was reproduced. Today Savoca has become very popular thanks to its picturesque places and especially the Bar Vitelli (which still has its old sign "Bar Vitelli") which still keeps the architectural and aesthetic features of the past when the famous scenes were filmed.

The tour continues to the charming Taormina with its ancient Corso Umberto, the Greek-Roman Theatre (that you can visit on request), and its exclusive shops. A walk along the narrow and picturesque streets is a must to discover the beauties of the pearl of the Mediterranean.

For those who leave from Messina at the end of the tour there will be a short visit of the historic center of the city: the square of the cathedral with the biggest astronomical clock in the world, the church of the Catalans which is an extraordinary example of Arab-Norman art and the panoramic terrace between the Shrine of Christ the King and the Sanctuary of Montalto where you can admire the Strait of Messina.
