Godfather & Taormina tour

One of Joe Banana Limos English speaking drivers will meet you right where the tender will let you off, holding a sign with your group's name on it. This will be a great introduction to the real Sicily, exploring the charming towns of Savoca and Forza D'Agrò with your local driver/guide who so proudly calls these areas home.



Starting from Messina port you will visit Castelmola, a medieval hill town above Taormina with breath taking views of the sea and of Mt. Etna, then drive to get to the art town of Savoca. This will literally feel like taking a step back in time. Although the name Savoca did not appear until 1415, the town probably dates back to the first half of the 12th century when a Norman Fortress was built. Savoca is not a touristic town, but a very simple every day "local" town set on the hillside of the foothills of the S. Peloritiani. 

 

What makes it different to the other towns? This is where Al Pacino and Cast shot the GodFather movies. To follow their footsteps and to visit the places that were so often shown throughout the movie will bring back many memories. While in town "a must" is the stop for a Lemon Granita at the famous bar "VITELLI" on the corner of the town, one of Francis Ford Coppola's favorite spots, and also seen many times throughout the film. Then you will make your way to the church of St. Lucy where the scene of the wedding between Apollonia and Michael was shot!

 


After Savoca you will visit Forza d'Agrò which is without a doubt one of the best examples of a typical village of the Province of Messina which still preserves its medieval street layout and has incredible views from all sides of the town. Here you will find the perfect mix of tradition, culture, history and art.



You will then drive to the highlights of Taormina. Our introduction to Taormina will take you around the beautiful town of Taormina, situated on a rocky plateau on the slopes of the steep Monte Tauro, dominating the Ionian coast from Capo Sant'Andrea to Capo Taormina with the Etna Volcano rising majestically in the background. The downtown centre represents a variety of historical periods, from the early Greek settlements and the Roman age, to the remains of Byzantine and Medieval constructions up to the 15th Century Catalan buildings and 17th Century Baroque churches and Palaces. A visit to the Greek Theatre is not to be missed, same as a simple stroll down the main street "Corso Umberto" with its art and designers shops, Baroque churches and Palazzi.

 

Your driver/guide will happy to point out some excellent lunch spots for you to enjoy a bite to eat.

 


After some time at leisure we drive back to the pier.

 

We reserve the right to change the order in which we visit the sites.
