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.

Our visit in Castello degli Schiavi in September was marvellous. Owner, Baron Platania was very polite and told us a lot of interesting stories about history of his family and the villa itself. As Godfather fans this was the most exciting part of our 10...More

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

We were shown round this amazing villa by the owner, who could not have been more friendly and kind. The history of this baroque villa is fascinating, even without the Godfather connection.
