Tour guide included
We are making you an offer you can’t refuse. Visit the original “The Godfather” film locations in Sicily with us.
After a fortifying breakfast, you will be picked up by your tour guide at the hotel.
When the crew of director Francis Ford Coppola was looking for a suitable location for the "Godfather" in the early 70s, the city of Corleone was the favorite. But the original developed from a village into a lively town and also the Mafia made this location increasingly unattractive due to demands for protection money. So the team chose Savoca, which was very similar to the old, rural, and quiet Corleone. Due to the films, the town has the image of a classic mafia town today, although in reality the mafia could never really get a foothold here.
In Savoca, enjoy the view over the city, which stretches over several hills, and discover the church of San Nicolo, where Al Pacino steps to the altar in the film. The "Bar Vitelli" should be well known to film lovers, and you will find it as you enter the city.
The mountain town of Forza d'Agro, with its crumbling ruins of a Norman castle, provided the perfect backdrop for the epic escape of Vito in a basket on the back of a donkey. If you stand at this point, you can step inside the director’s mind.
Stroll through the alleys and streets and experience a foray into film history that will captivate you.
