    See Important Information for details
  • 1
    Via Etnea
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    During "The Godfather" tour, you will walk along the authentic picturesque streets of Savoca and Forza d'Agro remained unchanged since the movie was made, visit ancient churches, famous Bar Vitelli where Michael Corleone asked Apollonia's father her hand in marriage, church where they married, and other movie locations. Optionally, you may taste perfect Sicilian wines and locally produced food sitting on a terrace with a panoramic view of the Ionian coast and surrounding countryside at one of the best wine bars in Savoca, and have traditional fish dinner at a fine fish restaurant in Forza d'Agro. First stop is Savoca, an unspoilt medieval town that near Taormina that acted as stand-in for Corleone where Michael was hiding out during the "going to the mattresses" time. Here you will visit Bar Vitelli that looks exactly the way it did in the movie, and see the exact spot where Al Pacino informed Apollonia's father that his name was Michael Corleone, and that "there are people who'd pay a lot of money for that information, but then your daughter would lose a father instead of gaining a husband". Here you can take pictures with an authentic Sicilian shotgun "Lupara", see pictures from the movie and a mirror monument for Coppola, enjoy panoramic view of the Mediterranean opening from the square where the wedding ceremony scene was shot, purchase The Godfather souvenirs, and - "leave the gun, take the cannoli" - taste original Sicilian cannoli and lemon granita at Bar Vitelli. Then you will walk to an ancient church of Santa Lucia, where Michael and Apollonia were married kneeling in the doorway. Then follow the same path down the hill that the newlyweds did, and visit another old church dating back to the 13th century. Walking along the fabulous streets of Savoca, on a good day you can also meet some actors - for example a lady who played Apollonia's mother and who still lives in Savoca. Later, optionally you can visit Enoteca near Santa Lucia church, and on a terrace with romantic sea view taste Sicilian red and white wines paired with traditional food (locally produced cheeses, salami, prosciutto, caponata, home-made jelly, olives, extra virgin olive oil and fresh home-made bread). The tour will continue in Forza d'Agro, another stunning hilltop town with a "Godfather" connection. You will walk the abandoned streets ("Where have all men gone?" - "They're dead from vendettas"), explore the historic square and see the pictures from the movie, visit ancient churches, see the piazza where young Vito Andolini (later Vito Corleone) escaped Don Ciccio's men by hiding in a basket on a donkey's back, walk up to see the remains of a 12th century Norman castle, admire delightful panoramic view of the Ionian coastline, and get a flavor of the Sicilian pastoral lifestyle remained unchanged since ancient times. Then, you can optionally have lunch or dinner at one of the best fish restaurants in Sicily and taste many kinds of traditional fish dishes with Sicilian red and white wines.

Wow!

This tour exceeded my expectations. It had to be the best day of my whole trip. Marco was my driver and tour guide and his passion for Sicily shone through. He was very friendly, extremely courteous and he knew everything about the Godfather trilogy. Each key spot in the film was magnificent, such stunning views and no crowds – it was almost like he had reserved these spots just for us, and we spent as much time as we needed in each location – Amazing! Marco made the trip memorable – truly. I would highly recommend this tour, this tour company and Marco as a tour guide. What a wonderful day.

Thankyou Omar, we had an excellent day. The tour was fantastic. Glad we went for a private guide as we could take the tour at our own pace. Bar Vitelli was amazing, could not have asked for a better day! Our tour guide Omar was professional and very informative. Excellent job, well done!

Absolutely Fabulous (Godfather) Tour
We had one of the best days of our Mediterranean cruise on a private tour of the Godfather movie sites in Sicily with Prestelli's guide Omar. Seeing and standing on the locations of such memorable scenes - particularly the wedding - of the iconic movie series was a thrill. And lunch with typical Sicilian food and wine while overlooking Savoca and the sea was delicious and beautiful. Importantly, the personal attention to our needs and pace wrapped the entire experience into a perfect day. Here's an "offer you cant refuse" - prepare for this tour by doing two things; watch the Godfather movies and ask for Omar to guide you!

Marco was waiting for us at the port at expected and had fruit from his garden! We were pleasantly surprised by his amazing attention to detail and knowledge of Godfather information! Our friend is a super fan and the two were able to exchange info, ideas and made for a delightful tour. The wine tasting was superb with owner and enjoyed plenty of food, wine and laughter!

To Godfather filming spots with Marco
Apr 2019 • Couples
During our stay in Catania we took this exciting tour to the most famous Sicilian Godfather filming spots - Savoca and Forza D'Agro. Our wonderful guide Marco shared with us a lot of interesting details about the Godfather filming process, introduced us to the owner of the famous bar Vitelli and a Savoca local who played in the movie, briefed us on the history of real Sicilian mafia, and told about the present day life of ordinary Sicilians. We highly recommend Marco as a guide in this tour as he is really passionate about the movie and Sicily! Thank you for a great day!

Our guide Fabio was on time and greeted us with Sicilian traditional sweets (which I hasten to add was not part of the package). Nice drive to the area where the Godfather was filmed whilst at the same time showing us and telling us history of Sicily along the way. Our guide Fabio definitely knows his history and way around all the Godfather areas and with the food and wine tasting along the way, it was definitely one of the best experience we as a party of 3 have ever had (and we travel a lot).

Really enjoyed the whole experience and was made more exceptional by the tour guide Fabio.

We are planning to go back towards the end of the year to discover more of the area and intend to book through the same company / guide.

Absolutely loved it and will fully recommend this tour. Worth every penny. You will not regret it.

Thank you for making our stay that much more special.

Godfather movie locations
May 2018 • Friends
Bruno was our driver for several outings one of which was the godfather tour. Always on time and arriving with a smile. He was a pleasure to be around, spoke fine English, was agreeable and knowledgeable about Godfather info as well as history and politics of Sicily.. We were a large group with 2 people in their nineties. lots of special requests which he willingly performed. In addition to our tour, Bruno also took us from Taoramina to the Catania airport... all 12 of us, wheelchair and luggage .
He helped with everything possible. Great attitude, safe driver. Would call again for his services.

When next time you will be to Sicily - just let us know - we would be happy to organize other tours for you, for example, Taormina private walking tour with food and wine tasting, or private tour of Sicilian countryside with lunch at an old mileston farmhouse. Thanks a lot for taking your time and sharing such a beautiful feedback! We look forward to meeting you in Sicily again! Nadia

Godfather Tour with Marco, 10 Stars
Apr 2018 • Couples
My husband and I are both very avid and detailed superfans of the movies. This tour is essentially why we spent 10 days in Sicily. Marco was our guide (for both this tour as well as the private Etna Winery tour). He was fabulous!!! There isn't one small detail that Marco does not know about the movies. In addition, you will learn A LOT about Sicilian culture, both historical and modern day. It is rare to meet someone with such a passion for their country.

I highly suggest including the lunch/wine tasting at Dionysus (owned with love by a former biologist) in Savoca with a beautiful patio, beautiful view, great food and wine. It is well worth the money.
