GODFATHER MOVIE TOUR: SAVOCA & FORZA D’AGRÒ

Savoca (pronounced with the stress on the first syllable) is one of those just-being-discovered destinations which you should visit as soon as possible. A quiet and crumbling hill village perched high above the sea, this is a really atmospheric taste of authentic Sicily. A world away from the touristy bustle of over-developed Taormina just down the coast, Savoca offers a chance to breathe deeply and see what an unspoiled Sicilian hill village can be. A recent restoration programme, including the development of a classy ‘scattered’ hotel resort, has opened the village to visitors, but a short stroll still passes abandoned dwellings, crumbling churches and amazing rural views.

Forza d’Agrò is a small town in the province of Messina, located on the jonic coast of the Sicily region.
First information about the town dates back to 1117, when Vicum Agrillae (the original name of the village) was given to the Monastery of SS. Peter and Paul d’Agrò. The actual name dates back to the XIV century after having fortified the centre. The word Forza in fact derives from Latin Fortia, and means “fort”, while the addition d’Agrò derives from Greek Agròs, and means “field”.
