Castello di Vezio: The best view of Lake Como

We stumbled upon this Castle through our GPS system as we had to kill some time in Varenna one of the little town in the shore of Lake Como while waiting for my dear friend Simone to meet up with us. We were so glad we found this place because you get the 360 degree view of Lake Como from on top of the tower, it was absolutely breathtaking. This is not to be missed if you are in Lake Como, lucky we found it: thank you miss GPS!!

The Castle is famous for its Falconry and weird but true Olive Oil. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any of the show but we were just as happy looking at some of the birds and explore the castle. The entrances fee is €4 for adults and €2 for children. Just a FYI pets are not allowed. You also need to pass a little cute village before reaching the entrance to the castle, which has that ‘as if the time has stop back in the olden times’ kinda of feeling.
