Day 8 Savoca/Letojanni

We were excited to make the trip into Sicily. We got to Villa San Giovanni just in time to miss the ferry, so we had to wait in line for the next one (about 20 min). It was a beautiful day to be on the water.

As we drove towards our hotel, we HAD to make a stop in Savoca--filming site of certain scenes of The Godfather. It was so fun to see a bit of modern history after so many antiquities.

The church where Michael Corleone and Appollonia Vitelli married in the film:

And the Bar Vitelli, owned by Appollonia's father, where Michael asked permission to court her:

I can't help but wonder what the film crew must have thought as they drove up this road to get to the town:

We drove in a few circles before we decided to stop for lunch, and then to get to our hotel in Letojanni. But the hotel was nice and right on the beach!

We enjoyed strolling along the seashore, checking out the menus of the little restaurants set out on the beach. We decided that this was the perfect place to try Spaghetti al Nero di Seppia (Spaghetti with squid ink).

And, guess what, we LOVED it!
