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.

This time we parked nn right near the village to take a short walk on the path of the Wayfarer that leads directly into the village and from there you get comfortably to the Castle. My 3 years old boy did the route on foot. At the ticket office are delivering an information brochure that explains in detail what you are watching, as if it were a guide! We went on a Wednesday and unfortunately it is the only day where nn it is possible to see the Raptors exposed inside the Castle. For the rest everything is very nice, we got a hot day but beautiful and the view from up there is priceless!

The castle is decorated with plaster statues. At the entrance there are some birds of prey.
We visited the Castello as part of a walking tour with Vermont Biking Tours. Really enjoyed the site and were able to watch the raptors get run through their paces. A great hike from the town of Varenna if you are OK with he hills! This site was recently featured on the reality show Amazing Race.
Short but steep hike to the top, but has great views of the surrounding area. The castle itself is somewhat small
Great site management job by the local association that manages the castle to keep the place alive! Flowers and herbs make up a very pretty garden and the picturesce location probably offers one of the best views over lake Como. Extremelly atmosperic and enjoyable (steep walk up the hill included).
Amazing Tower over the mountain, completely renovated, with possibility to go on the top. A panoramic view of the Lecco Lake, from the garden around.
Very nice (small) castle and amazing views. Birds of prey are cool, too. I took off a star only because of the dogs. When you walk by Officine Lario, be warned: the Rottweiler and German Shepherd are not friendly.
