Many of the places visited in this tour will seem familiar to fans of The Godfather movie series.
Begin with a brief drive through Messina and along the freeway to Roccalumera. From there, the coastal road, bordered by villas, flowering gardens, and picturesque villages, 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.
After a refreshment at Bar La Piazzetta, stroll along the village's main street past Santa Lucia and San'Michele Churches for a view over the valley.
Forza d'Agro, a 20-minute drive away, is 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, or Triade.
View the outside of the Baroque Chiesa Madre church before returning to Messina.
Participants must be able to walk approximately one mile over uneven terrain, gravel paths, inclines and 30 steps. Wear comfortable walking shoes. All visits are outside only. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
