    Porta Messina
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    During "The Godfather" tour, you will walk along the authentic picturesque streets of Savoca and Forza d'Agro remained unchanged since the movie was made, visit ancient churches, famous Bar Vitelli where Michael Corleone asked Apollonia's father her hand in marriage, church where they married, and other movie locations. Optionally, you may taste perfect Sicilian wines and locally produced food sitting on a terrace with a panoramic view of the Ionian coast and surrounding countryside at one of the best wine bars in Savoca, and have traditional fish dinner at a fine fish restaurant in Forza d'Agro. First stop is Savoca, an unspoilt medieval town that near Taormina that acted as stand-in for Corleone where Michael was hiding out during the "going to the mattresses" time. Here you will visit Bar Vitelli that looks exactly the way it did in the movie, and see the exact spot where Al Pacino informed Apollonia's father that his name was Michael Corleone, and that "there are people who'd pay a lot of money for that information, but then your daughter would lose a father instead of gaining a husband". Here you can take pictures with an authentic Sicilian shotgun "Lupara", see pictures from the movie and a mirror monument for Coppola, enjoy panoramic view of the Mediterranean opening from the square where the wedding ceremony scene was shot, purchase The Godfather souvenirs, and - "leave the gun, take the cannoli" - taste original Sicilian cannoli and lemon granita at Bar Vitelli. Then you will walk to an ancient church of Santa Lucia, where Michael and Apollonia were married kneeling in the doorway. Then follow the same path down the hill that the newlyweds did, and visit another old church dating back to the 13th century. Walking along the fabulous streets of Savoca, on a good day you can also meet some actors - for example a lady who played Apollonia's mother and who still lives in Savoca. Later, optionally you can visit Enoteca near Santa Lucia church, and on a terrace with romantic sea view taste Sicilian red and white wines paired with traditional food (locally produced cheeses, salami, prosciutto, caponata, home-made jelly, olives, extra virgin olive oil and fresh home-made bread). The tour will continue in Forza d'Agro, another stunning hilltop town with a "Godfather" connection. You will walk the abandoned streets ("Where have all men gone?" - "They're dead from vendettas"), explore the historic square and see the pictures from the movie, visit ancient churches, see the piazza where young Vito Andolini (later Vito Corleone) escaped Don Ciccio's men by hiding in a basket on a donkey's back, walk up to see the remains of a 12th century Norman castle, admire delightful panoramic view of the Ionian coastline, and get a flavor of the Sicilian pastoral lifestyle remained unchanged since ancient times. Then, you can optionally have lunch or dinner at one of the best fish restaurants in Sicily and taste many kinds of traditional fish dishes with Sicilian red and white wines.

Simply amazing
Jul 2021
Though a bit on the expensive side, I still highly recommend this tour. The places we visited were simply amazing. I did this tour with my girlfriend and we were both very satisfied with the way things went. Our Guide Marco was very knowledgable and enthousiastic, without going overboard. He always took the time to make splendid pictures of us at the beautiful locations. He also drove like a pro in his very neat car through the cornors on the small roads. Not only did we learn some fun facts about the making of the godfather, but learned about the history of Sicily as well. Big thumbs up for Marco, best tourguide ever!!

Great half a day tour from Taormina
We took a private Godfather tour with Marco in October. It’s a great half day tour exploring Sicilian countryside. We visited Savoca and then Forza D’Agro where Godfather movies were filmed. Marco was a great guide, playing relevant parts of the movie on his phone at each location.
We were able to take our time and had wine at the tavern that Michael Corleone meets Apolonia’s dad, we then walked through locations of the wedding party. In D’Agro we visited the church from the donkey scene from Gofather II. We were well looked after throughout and I would recommend Marco to other travellers.

For lovers of the film and of history.

Amazing tour, Marco was very personable and had great knowledge of the film as well the history of the area and of Sicily as a whole.

We saw all the sights from the movie and learnt interesting information about the towns and where it was filmed.

I recommend watching the film/films just before you go as a refresher but Marco also has clips he can show you.

We finished the tour with a delicious seafood lunch.

Aug 2020 • Family
This was a fantastic and very informative tour. Marco knew lots of trivia about the Godfather and was really prompt and helpful throughout the tour. The first village was very beautiful and we had lots of time to take pictures of view the different places in the films. The second village was also really interesting and Marco knew a lot about the town and history of the place as well as places that featured in the Godfather films.

Travel agent review- AMAZING!!!
Jun 2019
I am a travel agent and have been on many tours. Our private tour with Marco was nothing short of amazing. We were so happy we took this tour, it was definitely one of the BEST experiences we had in Sicily. Marco was punctual and super friendly to my children and of course my husband and I. He provided us with so much information on the movie, but more importantly the culture and history of Sicily and the area. He had so much knowledge and explained everything in such an entertaining and informative way. We were so happy we got to experience the small cliffside towns-their views, culture, and history. We absolutely were thrilled we added the food and wine tasting onto our day as well. The view in Savoca along with the delectable regional/local wines and mouthwatering food we tasted was unforgettable and there was SO MUCH of it!!!! We couldn't have been happier! We also bought some jars of the pistachio pesto which we brought home and made the recipe they gave us there in the store. We had tasted the pistachio sweet sample in the store and wish we could go back and bring that home as well. THIS tour is a MUST SEE/DO and Marco really made it fantastic for our whole family. Thank you!!! Ask for Marco!!!

Great Tour!!
Jul 2019
We had a wonderful time with our Guide Marco. I am a huge Godfather fan, but Marco actually knew more trivia than I did. We visited both villages, and I recognized many of the filming locations, with Marco pointing out details I missed. I highly recommend this tour!!

Godfather Private Tour with Marco!
Dec 2019
What a fantastic tour!! Marco is the best tour guide ever! He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the godfather trilogy, scenes, and locations. Took us through an amazing experience and paid attention to even the minute details at various locations and sites in Savoca and Forza D’Agro. This was one of the things that I wanted to do for the longest time and Marco certainly made it special! Highly recommend him!!!

Wonderful Godfather Tour With Marco
Nov 2019
If you are a fan of The Godfather Saga, this is a fantastic tour. My husband and I booked the trip through Prestelli Tours, and we had a prompt and effective communication from them at all times (thank you Nadia). Marco Prestía offered our tour, and he was excellent! Marco truly brings The Godfather movie to life with his passion for the movie. His knowledge, both of the movie, and behind-the-scenes is extraordinary; Marco was courteous, welcoming, and very kind taking pictures of us throughout the trip. We visited several iconic filming locations in Savoca (Bar Vitelli, and the Santa Lucía Church), and in Forza D’Agro (the Cattedrale María SS Annunziata). The tour also included a delicious lunch & wine in an enoteca with a panoramic view, and a generous dinner in a famous fish restaurant. We had a great experience during this tour, and we hope to return to Sicily soon to explore additional beautiful locations. Grazie Mille, Marco!

They made us an offer we couldn't refuse
Sep 2019
We had a large group of 28 that wanted to experience some of the scenery where The Godfather was filmed. Marco, our tour leader did not disappoint us at any turn. From explaining local culture to use during our bus ride to Savoca, to walking up to the church where Michael and Apollonia where married, Marco filled us in on every detail. Our lunch and wine tasting was exquisite to the point where we asked to bypass the rest of our tour and spend the rest of our afternoon at the restaurant overlooking the beautiful island of Sicily.
