No visit to Sicily would be complete without conjuring ideas of the Mafia and from these thoughts the movie ‘The Godfather’ instantly comes to mind. On today’s tour, you will get to visit some of the main locations where the film was made. The tour centres on the town of Savoca, famous not as a tourist town but for its ‘Godfather’ associations. While in town, a ‘must’ is a stop for a lemon ‘granita’ at the famous Vitelli café, one of Coppola’s favourite spots and seen many times throughout the film. Then make your way to the church of Santa Lucia where the scene of the wedding of Apollonia and Michael was shot. After this, you will head up to Taormina Mare for a great lunch at La Capinera, where the chef Piero D’Agostino will introduce you to authentic Sicilian cuisine. After lunch, a short visit of Taormina with its magnificent Greek theatre before returning to your hotel.
