Scenographic romantic castle above the beautiful little town of Varenna, the view and the atmosphere are really unique. A ticket is required to visit the castle and surrounding area.

In the center of Lake Como, on the promontory overlooking Varenna, the Castle of Vezio has stood for more than a thousand years, an ancient military outpost of low medieval origin built to defend and control the lake and the surrounding villages by the Lombard queen Teodolinda. . Located in a militarily and commercially strategic place from which the entire center of Lake Como is dominated and therefore inhabited since the Iron Age, the Castle was associated in the past with the village of Varenna and connected to it by two long arms of walls. that encircled it up to the lake, protecting the town and its inhabitants in the frequent wars and looting that shook the territory throughout the Middle Ages. Partially restored in the mid-twentieth century, today the Castle has a square-based lookout tower, accessible via a small drawbridge and open to the top, surrounded by a first quadrangular wall with a partial corner turret. Immersed in the greenery of one of the northernmost olive groves in the world, thanks to the thermoregulation effect of the lake waters, the Castle, open and open to visitors from March to November, occasionally hosts exhibitions of works of art of various kinds in the garden and permanently , inside the tower, an exhibition on the Lariosaurus, a prehistoric marine reptile that came to light for the first time in the world a few hundred meters from the Castle. With its partially open cellars, the statues scattered around the garden, the "ghosts" and the birds of prey of our small falconry center, the castle blends, in a context of unparalleled natural beauty, with the art, history and culture of the territory and we hope it will give you a pleasant break of relaxation and harmony in contact with nature.

One of the best view over the Lake of Como, the castle is also wonderful. During high season you can also take part to a falconry show
