Price Not Available

Walk in the footsteps of Vito Corleone as you explore quaint Sicilian churches and stroll down narrow cobblestone lanes used as filming locations for the Academy Award-winning film The Godfather. With an expert guide to lead the way, this behind-the-scenes tour is an offer you can’t refuse.

Travel through rugged green hillsides peppered with the red terracotta roofs of centuries-old houses. Reach the winding lanes of Savoca and hop out of your spacious tour bus to check out this charming village and track down the arched entrance of Bar Vitelli. Snap a photo in front of this still-operational watering hole where Michael, Fabrizio and Calo sat after Michael’s wedding in the film. Nearby, gaze at the church where the ceremony took place and imagine the Andolini family celebrating beneath its dramatic façade.

Move on to the mountainside town of Forza d’Agrò, home to the crumbling ruins of a Norman castle and the backdrop for young Vito’s epic escape in a basket on the back of a donkey. Stand on the same street where this critical scene was shot and picture director Francis Ford Coppola presiding over the camera lens just a few steps away.

Wrap up your fascinating foray into film history with some free time to meander around this medieval city, admiring the stunning architecture and immersing yourself in the spirit of old Sicily before heading back.
