Then, a half-hour drive takes you to Catania, the largest city in eastern Sicily. This ancient, medieval, and baroque city has been destroyed many times by nature and stubbornly rebuilt by man. Or hop over to the Aeolian Islands, with the famous Panarea, Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples, and Piazza Armerina with its Roman mosaics. And that's not even mentioning the Alcantara Gorges, Sicilian Museum of Art and Folk Traditions, The Cathedral (Church of San Nicola), Church of Saint Pancras, and the Regional Archeological Museum.
But the biggest site to see, by far, is the ancient theater. It is one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily, and dates back to Roman times, although its structure is more Greek than Roman. The theater is still frequently used for performances. Guests can also visit the Antiquarium, a small museum located in the home of the caretaker of the ancient theater. Then, head back to Grand Hotel Atlantis Bay for another round around the piano bar.
