Shore Excursion: The Godfather's Homeland with Private Driver from Messina Port

This Shore Excursion will take you into the real-life locations of the world-famous film the Godfather.
Following the path of this famous trilogy, you’ll explore the traditional villages of the setting such as Savoca and Forzà d’Agro’ as well as the beautiful ancient town of Taormina in the heart of Sicily.
You'll head into the Sicilian countryside to discover the villages that were the backdrop of the famous Mafia themed films. The main point that fans will recall is the town of Savoca and the recognisable Vitelli bar.
Before heading to the tantalisingly beautiful Taormina, you'll make a couple more stops at Forza d'agrò and Castelmola.
