DescriptionEnjoy the sights and tastes of Italy à la The Godfather in the company of a knowledgeable, English-speaking tour guide. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel or port at a time suitable to you before beginning your tour in Savoca, a medieval hilltop town where the fictitious Michael Corleone hid out during the 'Going to the Mattresses' scene. In Savoca, you will stop at Bar Vitelli, which looks exactly as it did in the movie. At Bar Vitelli, you will be invited to take pictures with an authentic Sicilian shotgun, see pictures from The Godfather movie, enjoy the view from the square where the wedding scene was filmed and purchase souvenirs. The highlight, however, will be an optional tasting of Sicilian cannoli and lemon granita. Your next stop will be the church of Santa Lucia, where Michael and Apollonia got married. You will follow in the footsteps of the newlyweds down the hill into the town. Once in the town, you will visit another ancient church, dating back to the 13th century. Your guide will tell you about the filming processes involved in shooting The Godfather and some fun trivia about the movie, the director and the actors. With your guide, you will learn about the real history of the Sicilian mafia, how it rose and developed, how it was structured, and about the 'Law of Silence', 'Men of Respect' and the 'Boss of the Bosses'. After all this walking and learning, you will be taken to visit one of the best wine bars in Savoca where you can try excellent Sicilian wines and locally produced, traditional food including cheeses, salami, prosciutto, olives and homemade bread. Your tour will continue to Forza D'Agro, another stunning hilltop town. Your guide will lead you along abandoned streets towards the historic square where you will visit the churches Santissima Trinita and Santissima Annunziata. In Forza D'Agro, you will see the piazza where young Vita Andolini escaped from Don Ciccio's men and you will walk up to the remains of a 12th century Norman Castle to admire the panoramic view of the Ionian coastline. Afterwards, you can choose to have lunch or dinner at one of Sicily's best fish restaurants with an accompaniment of fine Sicilian wines before returning to your hotel or other drop off location.
