The tour will start from the small but interesting town of Savoca; first thing to see is the "Bar Vitelli", where you can sit down and taste a fresh granita, while thinking that here Michael Corleone asked Apollonia's father for her hand in marriage.
With a short walk through the narrow streets you can enjoy looking at the wedding church where they got married, which name is Santa Lucia. Nothing to do with the films but not less important is the Cappuccini Monastery, which features an impressive collection of same ancient mummified monks.
Forza d'Agrò is the next town to visit, like many of the most charming villages in Italy, it sits on a hill overlooking Taormina and the ionian sea. Going ahead with our tour we will visit Forza d'Agrò, with its beautiful views, the arch Durazzesco and the church Triade another place chosen for a shot of the Godfather. Optional lunch and return.
If you desire, you can add the visit of the "Castello degli Schiavi"(about 2 hours more + entry costs), in Fiumefreddo. The visit is guided by the baron Platania, who will bring you around the internals of the castle, and explain in english some particularities of the film "The Godfather".
