Full description
The tour will begin with a visit to Savoca, one of the most picturesque medieval villages of Sicily, inserted in the circuit of the most beautiful villages in Italy since 2008. Also named Terra Ferace of Gagliardi Ingegni and country of seven faces, this delightful city of art has been chosen as a set for several important films including The Godfather, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. You will start from one of the most important places in Savoca, the Vitelli Bar, then go on a stroll through the alleys of the village, immersed in a suggestive landscaping setting. Admire the ruins of an ancient synagogue, a precious mullion in a pure 15-century style and you will reach the historic center of the country, which, according to some historians, is rooted in Roman times. Visit the church of San Nicolò, built in the 13th century and restructured in the 18th century, where some well-known scenes of the renowned cinematic work were also filmed. 

Continue by moving to Forza D’Agrò, immersed in the D’Agrò Valley. During the journey, you will be able to enjoy a breathtaking view and admire the obvious traces of an intense and previous farm activity which took place in the valley thanks to the terraces. You will also be able to enjoy a beautiful panorama that opens up towards the Ionian Coast. Here, you will make a small stop to visit the Cathedral of Mary S.Annunziata and Assunta dating back to the 15th century immersing yourself even more in a pure medieval context that exudes the Sicilian tradition at every corner. The excursion will end with some free time to visit the picturesque town of Taormina.

Along the main road of this town, Corso Umberto, with the Messina Gate below and the Catania Gate on the mountain side, you will admire the most important monuments: Palazzo Corvaja (The Corvaja Palace) the Teatro Antico* (The Old Theatre), Piazza IX Aprile, the Torre dell’orologio (The Clock Tower), the Cattedrale Fortezza (The Fortress Cathedral), the Badia Vecchia (The Old Abbey), the Palazzo Duchi di Santo Stefano (The Duke of Saint Stephen Palace) and much more. It will also be possible to go shopping in the exclusive shops which alternate with workshops.
