Savoca – visiting the Godfather village

Sicily has hundreds of cosy small villages to visit all with a story to tell. One tired day in the office we decided to just drop it all and drive to Savoca for a coffee to get away from work a projects. This village is just 20 min drive from Taormina where you find complete silence and relax. Here you can have a coffe and cake at the famous Bar Vitelli from the Godfather triology. The bar sells a very nice book about this film. Please ask for it from the cashier as this book was actually the last copy for this season. They promised to buy in more.

Sicilien har hundratals mysiga sm? byar att bes?ka, alla med en historia att ber?tta. En tr?tt dag p? kontoret beslutade vi att bara sl?ppa allt och k?rde till Savoca f?r en kopp kaffe och f?r att komma bort fr?n arbetet samt alla projekt. Denna by ligger bara 20 minuters bilresa fr?n Taormina d?r du finner fullst?ndig tystnad och slappnar av. H?r kan du ta en kaffe och t?rta p? den ber?mda Bar Vitelli fr?n Gudfadern trilogin. Baren s?ljer en fin bok om denna film. Fr?ga efter den i kassan eftersom denna bok var faktiskt den sista kopian f?r den h?r s?songen. De lovade att ta in fler.
