Meet our driver at 8am and enjoy an introduction to the real Sicily exploring the charming towns of Savoca and Forza D’Agrò.
Starting from your port and visit Castelmola, medieval hill town above Taormina with breathtaking sea and Etna views, then drive to get to the art town of Savoca and it will be like taking a step back in time.
Although recorded with its present name in 1415 the town probably dates from the first half of the 12th century when a Norman Fortress was built. Savoca is not a tourist town, it is a 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 Film.
Following their footsteps and visiting 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 Coppola’s favorite spots, and seen many times throughout the film. Then make your way to the church of St. Lucy where the scene of the wedding between Apollonia and Michael was shot!
From Savoca we 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 conserves its medieval street layout and on all sides of the town you have the most incredible views. Here we have tradition, culture, history, art all awaiting you.
Back to Messina port by 5pm.
