Tour Description

The Sicily Godfather Tour begins at the hotel were you will be picked up and be met by the driver who will drive you through the whole tour. It is obvious to the eyes of those who visit for the first time Forza d’ Agrò, that the love of the past, is rich of glory, history, culture and tradition which restrains the tendency to the frantic innovation. In this corner of the earth you will find a fantastic place, between the provinces of  Messina and Catania. This small town, not more than a thousand souls, has managed to adapt to various types of tourism, from young seeking adults to middle-age tired of chaos. Both are immersed in the tranquility and the greenery of this country dominated by the castle and with the medieval houses close to each other through narrow streets. In the Godfather Tour Sicily you can see the ancient structures of Forza d’Agrò that do not exceed more than two floors, preserving all the features from the time they were built. You will be surprised at the castle with its structure’s walls and internal architectural style. In the heart of the town you can admire the fifteenth century Cathedral of SS. Annunziata powerful but harmonious. Further down the Church of the Triad in Godfather Tour Sicily you will notice the countryside with its old huts and houses made of rocks, old wood, bamboo, whatever the land had to offer. You will remain fascinated by the ancient walls made of stone and earth and also the church of San Michele. Our journey continues to Savoca, it was founded in 1134 by Ruggero II. The  name Savoca seems to derive from a plant called sambuco (savucu) in dialett, which once grew spontaneously in the area, a twig, this symbol is depicted in the medieval coat of arm of the town. We the visit the Church of San Nicolò and see the walls of the church done by Bizantini frescoes, then see the Catcombe of the Covent of Cappucini. At this point Godfather Tour Sicily will stop to enjoy a typical Sicilian granite (frozen granita) in the famous Bar Vitelli, located in the historical center of Savoca, made famous by the film director Francis Ford Coppola who chose it as the setting for several scenes in the movie The Godfather. At the end of Godfather Tour Sicily will return to the hotel after this memorable day of these local towns of the zone of Messina.
