Great Mountain Town
My husband is a HUGE fan of the Godfather movies so naturally when we were in Sicily we had to take the Godfather tour. I’m so glad we did because the town was really a site to see. It sits upon this mountain and there’s just the one road that leads to the church and the cafe’s espresso was on point. Taorimna was a nice town to walk around shop and eat some food.

Best Tour of My Mediterranean Trip!
When Mariarita, our tour guide, started off the day with her big beautiful smile, I knew we were off to a great day! She was very friendly and professional. Right away, she provided us with bottled water and a pastry. Her English was beautiful and she was very knowledgeable. Both the little mountaintop village of Savoca & the tourist town of Taormina were beautiful stops to visit. I would highly recommend this tour.

Toured Savoca where the Godfather wedding scene was shot . Also walked up the steep hill to the church. Messina town was also very scenic and we sat and enjoyed a pizza and cannoli’s overlooking the stunning views. Our tour guide Chiara and drivery Roberto was very friendly were very friendly, professional and very thoughtful. Highly recommended to every one going to Sicily!!

Agence à recommander. Prise en charge au pied du bateau. Guide très sympathique et intéressante qui ne saoule pas avec des commentaires inutiles, à l’écoute des attentes des gens. Vehicule propre et récent. Eau gratuite à volonté. Temps libre suffisant à Taormina. Excellent rapport qualité prix

Best excursion!
We just did The Godfather tour with Chiara, our guide, and Roberto, our driver. What a wonderful day! The drive is breathtaking. Savoca is so charming and what fun to experience some of the sites of The Godfather movie. We took a little shuttle to the top of the hill to see the church where Michael and Appelonia were married. Then on to Taormina where Chiara guided us through the town and gave us time to dine and shop on our own. Without question this has been the best tour so far. Chiara is a delight! She’s so helpful and very professional. If you’re going to be in Sicily we highly recommend Discover Messina, Roberto and especially Chiara!
