Starting from $159 USD / Adult
OverviewHide
Follow the footsteps of the Godfather films on this journey to iconic filming locations in the region. Your cinematic adventure begins with a breathtaking drive to Savoca. Pass charming villas, blossoming gardens, and beautiful villages. In Savoca, you'll visit Bar Vitelli where you'll view local artisan's tools and photos taken when Francis Ford Coppola shot scenes of the Godfather II in the village. Enjoy a typical Sicilian granita, before taking a leisurely stroll along the village's main street, passing the Santa Lucia and San Michele Churches overlooking the valley. Continue on to Forza d'Agro, where you'll find the spectacular Arab-Norman castle of Capo Sant'Alessio perched on its own precipitous cape. In 1990, Al Pacino and Sofia Coppola shot scenes for the Godfather III here. View the Gothic-Catalan portal in front of the Church of San Agostino and see the Chiesa Madre church, before making your way back to the pier.
