Enjoy a full-day shore excursion on the island of Sicily. Head to the towns of Savoca and Capo Sant'Alessio to discover where some scenes from the Godfather movies were filmed. Later, stop in the charming resort town of Taormina for a walking tour.
Drive along the coastal road, rich in villas, flowering gardens, and picturesque villages, which leads to the historical artist town of Savoca. In a private house in the village, Bar Vitelli houses a collection of local artisans' tools and photographs taken when Francis Ford Coppola shot scenes of The Godfather II. Stroll along the village's main street past Santa Lucia and San Michele churches for a short view over the valley.
Continuing on, you'll find a charming little village overlooking the Arab-Norman castle of Capo Sant'Alessio. In 1990, Al Pacino and Sophia Coppola shot scenes here for The Godfather III. From the main square, a lane meets the circular steps that ascend to the Gothic-Catalan portal in front of the Church of San Agostino.
In the afternoon, continue on to Taormina and head out on a walking tour of this coastal village situated on a hill. Consider visiting the famed Greek-Roman Theatre or walking along the main street, Corso Umberto. Picturesque lanes above and below are interesting to explore, as are the gates of Porta Messina and Porta Catania.

Good to Know:
This excursion has been customized using a Driver-Escort, a chauffeur specialized to drive you around. He is able to provide basic historical information, and he can show you the main highlights.
The driver-escort will take care to give adequate time at all stops and to accommodate special requests when possible, and will assure that your experience in Sicily will be both memorable and enjoyable.
The driver-escort is not a Licensed Tourist Guide. Licensed Tourist Guides have regional licenses and are the only professionals permitted to conduct visits and tours at all sites and museums within a city. As a result, your driver-escort cannot escort you inside the monuments because this is not allowed by Italian rules.
In case you need a Licensed Local Guide, you must pay a surcharge and one will be arranged for you.
