Savoca (Sicily)

Savoca is a town in the Province of Messina, in the Italian region Sicily. The town, together with Forza d'Agrò, was the location for the scenes set in Corleone of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather. Bar Vitelli in Savoca, which is still a functioning establishment, was featured in the motion picture as the place where Michael Corleone asked Apollonia's father to meet his daughter. Up high, overseeing, are the ruins of the castle Pentefur, a building of questionable origin, perhaps Phoenician, Arab or maybe Norman. The city center contains a lot on beautiful landmarks: the old Town Hall, the Archimandrite Palace, the Mother Church, the Church of San Michele and the Church of San Nicolò as well.

What others are saying about Sicily

@alongianna asks:

I have a house in Sicily which I inherited from my parents and it is need of some work. When I contacted a contractor for a quotation I was given a price but told that there are government grants available which would pay 60/70% of the repairs.

@scottkeat asks:

Does anyone know how can I register to pay my property taxes electronically if I do not have any Italian identification documents? I have a Codice Fiscale, of course. But I am not a citizen, nor have a long-stay visa at this time.

Hi, we are looking at purchasing a 2nd home in Sicily and are currently doing as much research as possible.  I think we are aware of most of the potential problems and the agent we are in touch with has been honest and helpful and was born in Sicily.
