On a recent trip to Sicily we had the pleasure of meeting Dominico. He appeared as we were finishing a long and hot uphill climb in a remote little hill town. This man welcomed us unconditionally and offered us water and cut up fresh fruit...More
this is the place where michal corleone (al pacino) asked for apollonia's hand in the famous film "the godfather". they keep several original elements from the time when the film was made and there is a chair at the left side of the main door...More
An interesting village perched high up in the hills in the region of Taormina contains this building which was used in the Godfather films. When we looked in the place was heaving, made worse by the fact it was raining and we beat a hasty...More
I have been a Godfather fan since the movie came out. Visiting this bar was on my bucket list for years. Well, we finally made it. I sat in the same place Michael Corleone sat in the movie. It was an unforgettable experience. I would...More
This was one of the best parts of our trip to Sicily. We took a taxi up the mountain mid-week. I could not believe how much it still looks just as it did when the movie was filmed in the 70's. Follow the path of...More

No visit to Sicily is complete for Godfather fan without visiting iconic Bar Vitelli in Savoca. To avoid crouds, best to be there no later than 9:30 a.m. You can sit by the famous door and famous "Italo Pilzner" sign and enjoy excellent capuccino with...More
We had arranged a one on one guided tour for the Godfather locations to visit and experience amongst others the Bar Vitelli bar. We were there as a family of 3 for early afternoon slot. The bar was very busy and after taking pictures of...More
Seriously, the only reason why we were in Savoca was to see the various places where "The Godfather" was shot. This is perhaps the most famous spot, and it was pretty crowded when we got there. It is now a real cafe serving food but...More
Bar Vitelli is open 9.00 (9 am) ~ 20.00 (8 pm). Visiting the bar before 10.00 am or after 3.00 pm would reduce the probability of facing tour bus loads of visitors. But even if you visit the bar during the rush hours with... More
Bar Vitelli is open 9.00 (9 am) ~ 20.00 (8 pm). Visiting the bar before 10.00 am or after 3.00 pm would reduce the probability of facing tour bus loads of visitors. But even if you visit the bar during the rush hours with tour buses, the tourists would not linger inside the bar long, because they would be led by their guides to the hilltop church and surrounding areas. Then, they would be congregating near the gift shop/convenience store across Bar Vitelli before boarding their buses and heading to other scenic villages. Best wishes.

Yes it's easy. However, there are two Savoca areas- so make sure you get the right one. They are not far apart, so it doesn't matter if you end up in the wrong one. We just entered Savoca on our sat nav and blindly followed... More
Yes it's easy. However, there are two Savoca areas- so make sure you get the right one. They are not far apart, so it doesn't matter if you end up in the wrong one. We just entered Savoca on our sat nav and blindly followed it, as you do- but it was a 15 minute drive from the proper one so not too bad. The secret is to put the road name in as well as the village name! Lovely place, as well as the bar (nice, basic food) there are other things to see as well. Enjoy!
