Legend tells that the decision to shoot the film of Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather" was not targeted in the beginning on the locations of Savoca and Forza d'Agro but it was a stopgap. FFC in fact decided to take the film in Corleone, but they asked to pay an "unofficial tax", decided not to submit to the mafia and request to move the filming on the two hills of the eastern slope.
 
Never choice was more apt.
Savoca and Forza d'Agro entered right in the collective of all of us and especially the first, that was also awarded the title of "Most Beautiful Villages of Italy" in 2008.
 
Fom Savoca will start our tour, once they leave the site chosen for the "meeting point". There, we will find immediately the first structure exactly left intact from 1972: The Bar Vitelli (Trimarchi Palace), where Michael Corleone asks Mr. Vitelli permission to woo his daughter Apollonia. Second location is the Church of St. Nicholas where is celebrated the wedding between Apollonia and Michael Corleone. Not included in the filming of the movie, but it certainly must-see location, The Capuchin Monastery with adjoining crypt containing the mummified bodies savocese haute bourgeoisie of late 1500, the ancient Church of Calvary, the Gate of the City and the Ancient Prison.
From Savoca then we will drive to Forza d'Agro where we will find the Cathedral of Santa Maria SS Annunziata that appears in the first and second episode of Colossal. Leaving Forza d'Agro, our guides will take us to the last location of the Tour, the Giardini Naxos Rail Station, one of the scenarios of the third episode of the Godfather, but also the protagonist of other films such as Luc Besson's 'Le Grand Bleu' Piccolo Diavolo by Roberto Benigni.
