'The Godfather' Movie Tour from Taormina

Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins in either Taormina or elsewhere in Messina province, where you’ll be picked up by your guide in an air-conditioned coach for this half-day Godfather tour.

    When Francis Ford Coppola began work on filming his classic, The Godfather, he realized he couldn’t use the actual town in which the books are set—Corleone, Sicily. By the early 1970s, Corleone was too modern-looking to serve as the historic place of the novels. Instead, producers decided to use the towns of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò near Taormina.

    Savoca is your first stop. Visit the pretty Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli and the Convent of the Frati Minori Cappuccini, where you can even explore the underground crypt. Godfather aficionados will instantly recognize Bar Vitelli, where Michael Corleone told Apollonia’s father of his intention to marry his daughter.

    Enjoy free time to explore Savoca at your leisure, perhaps even to have a snack or drink (own expense) at the Bar Vitelli, before boarding the coach again to go to Forzà d'Agrò.

    Many scenes of village life were filmed in Forzà d'Agrò, with its cobblestone streets and traditional houses. You may also recognize the church that features in both The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II. Here, too, you have some time to explore the town on your own before getting back on the coach for the trip back to your starting point in Taormina or Messina province.

    I am not sure if they offer pick-up at the port. I do know they offer pick-up at hotels in the area of Taormina.
