Castello di Vezio, Vezio

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.

  • Enjoyed an hour of walking around the grounds of the "castle" Most are in ruins. The cost is very reasonable [3 euros for seniors].  more »
  • We were so upset. Took an hr. To reach there and found it was close. They should open for public in case any tourists climb up there.  more »
  • The ride to the Castello was adventurous. Admission for €4 range also! The views from there up on the Lago di Como and the surrounding area is second to none! There is still a hawks flight demonstration in Italian at certain times, the Falconer can also something English.

  • Gorgeous views. Nice cafe. Beautiful art. The hike to get there is short but brutal. Don't make the mistake we did and have lunch first!
  • Best spot to view Lake Como. Take the path from south of town for the incline for best views, and decent on the north path for easier walking. Either way, not so trivial to get there but the hike is totally worth it. The castle also has annual selection of plaster shells casted around volunteer visitors to take human forms, then the “ghosts” placed around the castle grounds.
  • Steep hike if you walk up but took about 20 minutes to reach top. Stones on path can be slippery so be careful! I slipped once coming down as path was wet due to brief rain shower. Take your time... Breathtaking views and well worth the effort. Stay for lunch as cafe there is good. Also falcon demonstration is worth it, despite being spoken entirely in Italian. Birds are beautiful and guide brings them around to crowd for close up pics after the talk.
  • The most beautiful place to stay in Lake Como. High up on the hillside with outstanding views of nearly the whole lake, this enchanting caste is simply magical. There are many acres to explore, 3 different pools, tennis courts and so much to do and see in the area. The hosts are incredible and each house you can rent is unique. There is no better place to stay!
  • Beautiful view on lake Como. It is worth to go up. The castle is interesting to see. There is also small bar there so if you get thirsty climbing up you will find refreshment there. You will need half an hour to climb.
