To arrive and explore Savoca is almost like taking a step back in time. Although recorded with its present name in 1415 the town probably dates back to the first half of the 12th century when a Norman Fortress was built. Savoca is not normally frequented by tourists, it is  a simple “local” town set on the hillside…What makes it different to the other towns? This is where Al Pacino and Cast shot the Godfather Film…Following their footsteps and visiting the places that were so often shown throughout the movie will bring back many memories. While in town “a must” is the stop for a Lemon Granita at the famous bar “VITELLI” on the corner of the town, one of Coppola’s favorite spots, and seen many times throughout the film. Then make your way to the church of St. Lucy where the scene of the wedding between Apollonia and Michael was shot!This morning meet your driver and English speaking Assistant to head to Savoca and taste the freshness of a Granita Siciliana before taking the most amazing flight over the sea…

We then drive to the next Sicilian village "Gallodoro" from where, You will be ready to jump off from the cliffs and lift off with the simplest flying apparatus the human being has ever created - the hang glider.
