Savoca

The Godfather movies were based in Corleone but that's not where they were filmed, one of the smaller cities the series was filmed at was Savoca.  Savoca is on the east side of Sicily, not far from the ferry crossing from mainland Italy.
 This is the bar where in Godfather II the wedding scene left the church and walked down to a circle of family.  Today it's under restoration.
 The town looks like  a post card.
 The clock tower is Church Saint Nicola, again from the wedding scene in Godfather II.
 Museo is Italian for Museum, but it was closed on the day we visited.
 Coppola was here!
