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 vista that is worth the hike- but make no mistake, it’s not an easy hike! (Make sure to wear comfortable shoes!) Best view is from the very top of the castle, it’s worth the extra 5 flights of...

  • Horrible people run this place. I would not want to give them any money. We went there with our kids, a baby and a toddler. The staff threatened us because we couldn't get out of the place as fast as they wanted us. We had children with us!!! Unbelievable! It really was a police matter, but who wants that on their holidays. Unbelievable! Update: I had not looked at previous bad reviews and the ridiculous answers by the owner. So now I am not surprised. The first communication to us was literally: "I am closing now, I will lock you in. You can call the police. I don't care!" You can not treat people that way and think we will be nice.
  • Easy hike up, we took one way up and the other way down. Beautiful views at the top. The castle was pretty cool to see as well.
