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.

Birds of prey cramped in small, dingy cages and only let out for entertainment purposes where they are tethered on a tiny lawn. more »
3 - 4 Euro for entry. But it's more than worthy, you will see many birds and breathtaking views of lake Como and many towns and villages. You can climb to the top of Vezio castle a enjoy even better views. Everything is clean and bright here. 💯 recommend.
We hiked up from town and had a great experience. Both routes are amazing, but difficult if you are not reasonably in shape. The route that starts from the parking garage and up the road is much more unstable, with lots of rocks - but great views and walking through a olive grove. The other route is still steep, but is a very good, wide, cobblestone path. The Castle itself is small, but very interesting.
