Things to do
The Grand Hotel Hermitage lies in an oasis of vibrant flowers and greenery, a short walk from the town of Sant'Agata sui due Golfi down a private path.
A charming little place, the town was a centre for merchant activity between the two gulfs but which became famous as an idyllic tourist spot for Italians and foreigners alike - most notably by partakers of the 'Grand Tour' of gentry, poets, writers and artists. The town is so-called from the late renaissance 16th century church there named after the Sicilian virgin Saint Agatha which holds a Florentine masterpiece altar.
