What You'll Do
  • Enjoy exploring Corleone, nicknamed the Town of 100 Churches
  • Discover the area where the picciotti, or young gangsters, were recruited
  • Admire the mother church, named after St. Martin
  • Learn about Sicily's infamous history
The name Corleone usually brings to mind the Corleone family of The Godfather movie. On this tour you’ll learn about the Mafia plague based in the beautiful Italian town of the same name. Take a walk through the town and learn about its infamous past.
What to Expect
On this 5-hour excursion you’ll enjoy a 90-minute drive through the hilly landscape of Sicily before arriving in the town of Corleone, where your local guide will take you on a stroll along the quaint streets and to the square where the picciotti, or young gangsters, were recruited for the Mafia.

In the beginning of the 1960s, the town became infamous as the place where well-known criminals of the Sicilian Mafia had their headquarters. This was the Clan dei Corleonesi, ruled by Totò Riina, head of the cupola, or hidden Mafia council.

You’ll pass by the mother church dedicated to St. Martin on the way to the Palazzo St’Agostino, where a photographic exhibition of judges Falcone and Borsellino is displayed.

Your expert guide will bring to life the most infamous recent history, explaining how the Sicilian people, led by these judges, eradicated the Corleonesi blood bond that had ruled the whole Island.
