Detailed description

The tour will begin with the visit of 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 very important films, including “Godfather”, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. We 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. We will admire the ruins of an ancient Synagogue, a precious bifore in a pure fifteenth-century style, and we will reach the historic center of the country, which, according to some historians, is rooted in Roman times. We will visit the church of San Nicolò, built in the 13th century and restructured in the eighteenth century, where some well-known scenes of the renowned cinematic work were also filmed. 

We will continue by moving to Forza D’Agrò, immersed in the homonymous 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. We can also enjoy a beautiful panorama that opens towards the Ionian coast. Here, we will make a small stop to visit the Cathedral of Mary S.Annunziata and Assunta dating back to the 15th century immersing ourselves 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) (Museum of Arts and Folk Traditions*), 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), and 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.
