Full description of the tour

A private tour of the Iconic villages in the Taormia and dear to the Godfather in the famous movie

Your English speaking tour driver will welcome you at the dock beside your cruise ship in the Sicilian Port you’ll be docked in, at any time of your convenience for this private Taormina and The Godfather tour.

You will visit the beautiful Piazza Belvedere (Lookout square) where you will have a breath-taking view of Isolabella (Beautiful island) and the Messina coast line.

On this tour you will enjoy a drive through a wonderful scenery with photo stops at the most beautiful locations.

You will enjoy a scenic drive inland to Savoca which is considered one of the most attractive places in the environment of Taormina. Free time for a “granita” in the Bar Vitelli with a gorgeous terrace, houses a collection of local artisans’ tools and photographs taken when Francis Ford Coppola shot scenes of The Godfather II.

Then we walk to the Chiesa Madre, where the scene of the wedding between Apollonia and Michael was shot with its fine 16C portal surmonted by a beautifully carved oculus and the coat of arms of Savoca, bearing the eldeberry branch from which the name of the town is supposed to derive.

The tour will continue to Taormina, a spot of infinite loveliness, the land of Dolce far niente – of sweet do nothing.

The town lies in an elevated position of amazing, almost unique beauty, affording magnificent views combining sea and sky of a marvelous blue, miles of a curving coastline and picturesque mountain scenery, while the majestic pyramid of Mt. Etna on one side constututes a scene of indescribable beauty.
We will visit together the Piazza Belvedere (Lookout square) where you will have a breathtaking view of Isolabella (Beautiful island) and the Messina coast line.

Upon arrival in Taormina you will have your free time to admire the cathedral. The imposing medieval building was erected in the thirteenth century on the ruins of a church dedicated to St. Nicholas of Bari, the Greek Theatre from the 2nd century A.D. – Palazzo Corvaja and Corso Umberto where you can spend some time doing excellent shopping.

At the end of this tour, we will drive you back to your cruiseship.
