During our Mediterranean cruise aboard Royal Princess cruise ship in September 2017, I joined the ship's shore excursion at Messina, Sicily, which followed the steps of Coppola's Godfather in Sicily, starting with visit to "Savoca" followed by "Forza d'Agro". Both villages were chosen by the...More

Another jewel in this charming village atop a mountain on the coast North of Taormina. Reportedly, for Godfather aficionados, 'the' church of one of the movie triad.

It is always special to meet so iconic movies locations! Forza d'Agro is a small town near Toarmina, it is not outstanding place, but for the movie fans its is nice to see the church.

Forza d'Agro is a nice village to wander, and it has several churches which are worth stopping in for a few minutes if you have time for a bit of peace and quiet.

This church, of course, appears very briefly in part 1 of The Godfather movie, as part of the scene where Michael Corleone weds Appolonia Vitelli. The main church is in the town of nearby Savoca. Both are worth seeing, including the Bar Vitelli, which appears...More

Well, it was nice to pop in but after visiting hundreds of churces in my life I would say, it was OK. And for Godfather fans, it it a must see attraction. The scenery was more interesting!
