    What a joyful day!

    Salvo's donkey tour was the best part of my trip to Taormina. Salvo was very funny and warm, actually quite a character! He certainly took good care of his donkeys. They were such sweet creatures. My donkey's name was Gina. Salvo even let me to lead his three donkeys in the old village of Savoca. I did not know anything about Savoca. It turned out to be the movie site for Godfather. Savoca had a rich / long history, quiet and beautiful on top of the hill. To be honest, I don't quite remember the movie Godfather much. I came here for Sicilian countryside with donkeys, rather than chasing movie scenes. It was such a joy to climb up hills on dirt roads covered with pink flowers on soft and fluffy donkey. It was fascinating to meet local village people and hear about their stories, especially about St Lucia. Salvo showed me a few movie clips of Godfather. Of course, it was a bit shock to see the actual places where they made the movie, as well as meeting the local lady who was actually played a part in the movie. It was a fascinating day. Salvo told me that donkeys can have very long life. Maybe one day I can come back to meet Gina and Dantes again.

    So much fun!!! Salvo picked us up at the ship terminal and took us to the small town of Sacova which is also his hometown. Climbed up on 2 Sicilian donkeys, Gina and Katarina, along with guide dog Molly who rode along with us. Explored the village, enjoyed Spritzs and saw many of the sites where Godfather 2 was filmed. Certainly something different from another small town tour. Salvo was the most excellent host. Don’t need to be know how to ride to enjoy

    Take The Godfather Donkey Tour Challenge!

    My sister and I (both retirees) were really looking forward to this tour and we weren't disappointed! The donkeys are gentle, well trained and and a pretty smooth ride. The village of Savoca, high in the hills, with views of the sea and on a clear day Etna Volcano is picturesque, romantic and a little mysterious. Our guide Salvo's knowledge extended well beyond the infamous Godfather sites as he has a very personal attachment to the village past and present. Along the way we stopped for a granita, coffee and brioche and were treated to a refreshing Aperol spritz. Just a great day with Salvo and his darling little Molly.
