Savoca, the most beautiful village in Italy

Savoca, the most beautiful village in Italy

A few kilometers from Taormina, perched on a rocky hill, surrounded by citrus groves, vineyards and olive groves, lies the town of Savoca, a small medieval village that in 2008 was included among the most beautiful villages in Italy. Here the time seems to have stopped, one almost has the feeling of having been catapulted in the past, about 50 years ago, when the cars still didn't circulate and life ran slowly and harmoniously. A walk along the semi-deserted streets of the historic center, surrounded by ancient buildings, opens the door to panoramas that cannot leave you indifferent. city of art, perhaps little known, which however owes its fame to the famous film "Il Padrino" by Francis Ford Coppola
