Overview of your Syracuse tour:

I am exited to propose you this tour because you can admire different aspects of Sicily. Today Savoca is famous because they filmed some of the most famous scenes of "The Godfather" as the marriage of Michael and Apollonia in the Church of Saint Lucie and the wedding party in the little square in front of the Bar Vitelli that still exists and still makes very refreshing granita. Leaving aside the movie you will discover a typical medieval village that was built in the top of a very suggestive hill that dominates the southern side of the Strait of Messina Taormina, however, is today one of the most touristic attraction of Sicily. In the last years it became more famous because they filmed the second season of The White Lotus and the hotel of San Domenico became the site of the hotel in the tv series Apart from the many tv shows made in Taormina, it is a town that really deserves a visit for the greek-roman theatre, the "passeggiata" in the main street, the wonderful public garden and the medieval architecture
