Castello di Vezio, Perledo

Dominating a hillside village, Castello di Vezio once served as part of a medieval set of watchtowers. It's a steep climb up a mule path to the village, but the views from the top are more than rewarding. The castle hosts falconry displays on certain days--check the website for more info.

  • It's a nice walk. Take the short route from behond the village, it's initially steeper than the carpark route but overall easier. Don't expect a smooth footpath though, it's a village trail and some p...  more »
  • Who walk runs at Lake coma, should visit the Castello. Below there is a free car park, the climb requires at least good sturdy shoes, the way is bad and steep. At the entrance there is also Cafe and small meals, it's probably a club who runs it. The plant itself is very well kept and wonderful views. To the Raptors in a kind of exhibition were our time to visit. Some artists have immortalized themselves. On the Tower's can be somewhat windy depending on the season. At Sunshine in my view a must, who is no longer good to walk, I advise against the rise.

  • Passing by the path of the Wayfarer, big disappointment for the closure of the Castle and the fact of not having the ability to access the surrounding gardens. Varenna and Vettius virtually closed in its entirety until March.

  • Stunning view! You have to be brave to go up the hill and then go up the tower, but it definitely worth the effort! So beautiful scenery! Love it!
  • It's great except for the huge bird in the cage. I would give it five stars of the bird was flying in the sky, free and happy.
  • an iconic place due to the ghosts best part is the view from the tower if you expect more than this it might dissapoint, but it is a must-visit place when going to Como lake. the '1 lane wide, 2 way' road towards the end offers additional adrenaline if you drive there.
  • nice castle but it's really horrible and sad to see the poor chained birds and the owl's in cages. stop it! i won't come again until it stops.
  • Wonderful climb with a great view at the end. The path is a bit rocky but it is worthwhile to push through it. You can access from multiple points including a path from Villa Monstero.
