* A traveler said: "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."
