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.

Castello di Vezio Reviews
Due i sentieri che lo collegano con Varenna. Noi, su per il Sentiero del Viandante, giù per l'altro (più ombroso).

Castle fortification of which a large part of the walls and the remains have been preserved. From the square and from the Tower spectacular view. Happened during the nice performance of a couple of raptors. They fly to their liking and come back. For those who have "a little leg", three different hours to spend. Nice.

The entrance costs only €4 and for the figure is worth even just climb up the tower and look around. Beautiful raptors each with a different name. Also beautiful plaster statues reminiscent of ghosts scattered around the castle. There are many olive trees. On the way there are placid posters so that even without guidance people can be informed about the building.
Incredible views from here! Well worth going up and the small entry price. Sweet bird of prey display too.
People keep talking about this big journey up to the castle its not bad at all actually a very cute walk up met some nice local Nona’s on the way that even gave me a short cut. I love birds of prey and was super excited to visit. Problem was we didn’t keep in mind the times it closes. Anyway I did the climb got there 15 minutes before closing and was refused in the girl that worked there was pretty rude about it which was unnecessary. Lol still so sad! I will try again next time.
