Enjoyed meeting the Baron and visiting his home, chapel and basement. He was a gracious host, full of enthusiasm. Due to the weather our tour of the grounds was limited, we were able to snap a few outdoor photos before the rain started again. It...More

This was excellent. You need to have your hotel conciege make a reservation. The current owner takes you around the villa. You immediately recognize the place from all three Godfather movies. It is the home of Don Toamassio.

The location in google is not correct. You have to drive approximately 1 additional km from the advertised point. The place is very nice and atmosphere is great , though I doubt that the tour worth 25 euro per person.

This was an excursion option listed for our Regent cruise. A quite superb choice. The first part of the excursion was very uninspiring until we surprisingly arrived at Castello degli Schiavi. Our group of about 20 people were thoroughly entranced and entertained by the Baron...More

We were lucky to get a local introduction which enabled us to get a one to one tour. I have no idea how a tour is arranged otherwise. Loved this mainly as a godfather fan but also the house is a fine example of baroque...More
