"The Godfather" filming locations
Looking for fun things to do in Sicily? Follow in the footsteps of the Godfather! The island is the ancestral home of the notorious Corleone family at the heart of Coppola's saga, adapted from the novel by Mario Puzo. Corleone, a town located around 57 km from Palermo, was too developed even in the early 70s to be used for filming, so more traditional and unspoiled villages were used for shooting scenes instead. In Savoca, a village near Taormina, you'll find Bar Vitelli and Chiesa di Santa Lucia (the church Michael was married in).
Forza d'Agro is a small village that appears in the movie when Michael goes to Corleone for the first time; and in "The Godfather 2", in the scene when the nine-year-old Vito escapes to America hidden in a basket. Castello Degli Schiavi in Fiumefreddo di Sicilia was the location of Don Tommasino's villa (car blown up scene) and Giardini Naxos was the setting of Baghiera train station, at which Vito arrives when he returns to Sicily in the third part of saga. The opera sequence was filmed in Teatro Massimo in Palermo.
