Enjoyed meeting the Baron and visiting his home, chapel and basement. He was a gracious host, full of enthusiasm. Due to the weather our tour of the grounds was limited, we were able to snap a few outdoor photos before the rain started again. It is well with taking time to visit this site.

This was excellent. You need to have your hotel conciege make a reservation. The current owner takes you around the villa. You immediately recognize the place from all three Godfather movies. It is the home of Don Toamassio.

We visited the Castello in May 2018, almost at the end of our tour to Sicily. When we flew from Toronto, we had in mind the possibility of visiting some of the places were the Godfather was filmed. We never imagined having the chance to tour the very same location where Tony and his first wife lived and were she died in the explosion. Our driver offered making an appointment for us, we both paid a fee and were greeted by the owner, Baron Platania. He kindly showed us all the parts were the movie was shot and, additionally, showed us the cellar and the chapel. He also invited us into his home and showed walked us through all the memorabilia. If you’re a fan of The Godfather, this is the place to go!

I have been doing a tour of the film locations for the Godfather trilogy. This was the last place on my agenda and have to say probably the most important of all the locations as for those that know the films it is where Michael hides and lives with his wife Apollonia and is the place where the car she drives towards Michael explodes and also the farewell scene for Michael where peacefully dies all alone in a single chair. That on its own is a powerful message of the life he led...... In any case, we could not enter as you have to pre book and I did not realise this prior to making my trip. I was able to take some pictures through the gates of the house but only the side. Never mind. I would go again and next time rate it 5 I'm sure. This feedback is of my own experience.

The location in google is not correct. You have to drive approximately 1 additional km from the advertised point. The place is very nice and atmosphere is great , though I doubt that the tour worth 25 euro per person.
