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.

  • A beautiful 3-mile hike, we did it counterclockwise, climbing from the south. The views are great and the tower very interesting. There's a snack bar on top for a refreshing beer.

  • The castle stands on a hill overlooking Varenna, and the climb to it is moderately difficult. It has been extensively restored, and offers a real insight into life one thousand years ago. When we...

  • I enjoyed hiking up to the top of this castle.The views were amazing. To get there you begin on the path to the left of the Montecodeno restaurant and hotel, which is a short walk from the ferry. It is a steep stone path, with a resting spot and natural spring water fountain to drink from a little more than halfway up. we took the other path down that leaves you over by the monastery. That was also steep but was more stair like with the positioning of the rocks. Definitely wear sneakers. Suitable for kids that are accustomed to hiking over the age of 8.
  • Great little place with a lot of information. Not much to do apart from walk up to the castle, go up inside, look at the view, and come back down, but a good way to waste of couple of hours. I did NOT enjoy seeing the majestic birds trapped in their tiny cages.
