Duration: 7 hours
Discover the beautiful town of Corleone, a medieval town with Baroque architecture brought by the Spanish influence.
At the beginning of 1960, the village became famous (or perhaps infamous) for its Mafia, being the town in which some well-known clans had their headquarters (Clan dei Corleonesi). Hollywood movies linked Corleone to the Mafia and the name of the town was even used as the adopted last name in Francis Ford Coppola’s movie, The Godfather.
In the 90s Corleone inhabitants worked hard to bring back their good reputation and started a social campaign to promote legality. In 2000 the Anti-mafia museum (CIDMA) was open to showcase all the documents and pictures of the most important mafia bloodsheds.
After a short drive you will stop at the Royal Palace in Ficuzza (external view), once used as hunting lodge by Ferdinand I of Bourbon. Then, you will enjoy a light lunch based on typical products.
Before going back to Palermo, weather permitting, a scenic drive along windy and off-the-beaten path roads will give you the opportunity to admire fascinating rural landscapes.
Please note that in case the CIDMA is not available the tour will be operated including a different stop in accordance with the driver.
Exact time will be provided in final documents. Pick up at your hotel.
