Tour description

Follow in the footsteps of Francis Ford Coppola’s (anti)heroes on this carefully crafted cultural tour. We’ll combine sightseeing around the rustic villages of Forza d'Agrò and Savoca with engaging stories about the real-life Mafia recounted by your expert local guide.

As well as enrichening your experience of Sicily with fascinating stories and insights into the local culture, this tour will leave you nourished with some of Sicily’s world-famous food. This is the perfect tour for any Godfather fan wanting an authentic Sicilian experience.

Journey across the island of Sicily to Forza d'Agrò

Just a 20 minutes drive from Taormina is the Forza d'Agrò. This small traditional village feels truly frozen in time. Its stone paved lanes don’t permit any traffic, transporting you back hundreds of years. Forza d'Agrò’s authenticity is what made it ideal when shooting the Godfather.

We then travel to Savoca

This is the second Sicilian village used as set for the movie. See the famous Bar Vitelli where Michael Corleone asks an elderly man about a beautiful woman he’s seen - not realising it’s her father. We’ll also visit the church of Santa Lucia where Michael and Apollonia later get married.

Enrichen your knowledge of Sicily

During the tour, your guide will introduce you to the real history of Sicilian Mafia, explaining how it rose from obscurity and spread its roots across Italy. You’ll learn all about the real structure (cupola) of the criminal organization, about its boss, and about the clan wars fought to control the territory.

You will also discover how, with the home of ex-mobsters, two Sicilian officers (Falcone and Borselllino) came close to discovering the truth behind the Mafia and its infection of Italian politics as your guide transports you through their tragic story.

Wind down the tour in a traditional trattoria

Here we’ll indulge in a typical home-made Sicilian pasta dish, washed down with a refreshing glass or two of local red wine. This is the perfect way to relax after our walking tour before driving back to Taormina.
