The views are undeniably lovely but I was sorely disappointed in the Castelo. 10am on a Tuesday, there were no birds just pounding techno music comprising DJ with half a dozen people standing around in a trance. When I complained she said they were filming,...More

A steep and slippery climb (wear proper shoes) and you'll reach the beautiful garden and castle of Vezio. At the entrance you'll find printed info of the castle's history. You can climb all the way up the tower. The views are magnificent and those plaster...More

It was a nice walk uphill. Before arriving at the castle you walk through a small and characteristic village. From the castle you have an amazing view on the Como lake. You can visit the garden and tower. It takes about 20-30 minutes. Do not...More

Posted signs at the gated entrance and in printed ads noted that the Castillo di Vezio was open until 7pm during the month of June. My family and I made the long uphill hike to the castle entrance and arrived at 6:43pm. The woman at...More

Hello David, as is written on our website and as the woman at the entrance told you, the last entrance is 20 minutes before the closing time, so I can’t understand what is your problem.

It is a short but strenuous walk up to the castle: most of the path is quite steep. Fortunately, it is quite well signposted. Vezio was never much of a castle, and it is somewhat of a ruin, but the view over Lake Como is...More

Very nice little walk around a ruin of a castle with a breathtaking scenery. Also some nice art in the gardens and of course the birds. We were unlucky as the weather wasn’t great but it was looking nice and interesting...if you are fluent in...More

It was a steep hike up to Castello di Vezio from Varenna, but the views over the lake from the castle are stunning. You can see all the way up and down the lake from the overlooks. The castle itself was nice to see, but...More

We found parking along the street below and walked/hiked our way up to the castle. We had perfect weather and it was the perfect length of "hike" with younger kids. Beautiful views of Lake Como. The kids thought the "ghosts" were pretty cool...and they liked...More

Great view, 2 trails to go up/down. When facing the castle while in Varenna, the trail at your right is the tough one (hiking trail). The left trail is much more easy. If you are not in shape, take the left trail.

This was a highlight of our trip to lake como. The walk up the hill is worth the breathtaking view of the area. The castello is beautiful and the gardens are meticulously cared for but the view is what you come for. A must do.

You might find it difficult to navigate the narrow streets that maze around the castle but you can always park up somewhere close to the castle and walk from there.
