Tour description provided by Viator

Relive your favorite scenes from ‘The Godfather’ on this filming location coach tour from Taormina or Messina province. Although the location of the plot for the movies was Corleone, many scenes throughout the epic trilogy were filmed in the Sicilian villages of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò, both of which you’ll visit. See Bar Vitelli and other places where some of the most memorable scenes were shot, and enjoy commentary about the movies from a friendly guide. It's a must for Godfather fans!
The Sicilian town of Corleone was the birthplace of many members of the characters from The Godfather, but Corleone was too developed in the early 1970s to be used for filming. So director Francis Ford Coppola opted for the traditional towns of Savoca and Forzà d'Agrò, just outside of Taormina. Start with a pickup from select hotels in Taormina or in Messina province for your 4-hour Godfather tour, during which you’ll see first-hand where scenes from some of the greatest films of all time were shot.Settle into your comfortable coach and travel along the Sicilian coast to Savoca. Hop out to walk the streets of tiny, tucked-away town in the hills. Here you'll visit Church of Santa Maria Degli Angeli and enter the spooky underground crypt in the Convent of the Frati Minori Cappuccini. Get your picture taken at Bar Vitelli, the iconic bar where Michael Corleone asked Apollonia's father to meet his daughter. Make the most of 30 minutes of free time in the village to explore independently or perhaps relax with a coffee (own expense) before heading to your next stop: Forzà d'Agrò.The stone-paved pedestrian lanes and traditional buildings of this medieval hilltop town made for the perfect backdrop for the Godfather films. Here, visit the church that appears in several scenes in The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II, followed by some free time to explore on your own.Reboard the coach and head back to your Taormina or Messina province hotel in the early evening.
