Castello di Vezio, Perledo

4.4
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.

  • We had a beautiful sunny morning of March in this setting of Lake, with breathtaking scenery ... We met the beautiful Arthur an awesome real owl ... recommend hiking boots and some physical condition to make the climb to 40 min. ... Have fun!

  • Just above Varenna, reachable on foot from the village by car or leaving it nearby. Surrounded by nature, near spends wonderful Sentiero del Viandante. The entrance fee is €4. The view is spectacular for Varenna, Bellagio and around the Lake. The facility is small and well kept. You can climb the Tower, which is the best preserved piece of the entire structure and the view is even more breathtaking. Also offers falconry and statues of ghosts here and there in the garden. The staff are friendly and helpful. On the rainy days is closed. I have been there several times and will definitely be going again.

  • The hike up is a bit tough but not scary, but its worth every second! The view is great and there’s a nice cafe to rest in, also the ticket price is very cheap compared to other places in Italy.
  • A sweet surprise on the wayfarer's trail near lake Como. Costs 4€, open ~from March to November
  • There is not much left from the castle, but still worth to see. The views of Como are amazing. I recommend put some comfy shoes if you are planning to start climbing from Varenna.
  • It's great except for the huge bird in the cage. I would give it five stars if the bird was flying in the sky, free and happy.
  • It was a nice climb but the entrance fee is too high for budget travelers and for what is offered (4 euro)
