Hiked up to Castle Vezio from the main square of Varenna where the ferry docks. Short but steep walk up starting among the restaurants downtown up past some residences up the hill and further up next to some woods until you reach the top of the hill where the castle is. Tickets are 4 euro per person and you can walk around the whole castle which isn't huge but the views are spectacular looking south at Bellagio and the split of lake Como. Amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Very cool spot and did the whole journey from the ferry up and back down in less than an hour to catch the boat back to our next destination.
