Do I hear a collective facepalm?
Well my reference to that ad that plagued our tv screens will become clear in the next few sentences...
Castle Vezio is located on the top of a steep incline in the beautiful town of Varenna. The incline, however, was not so beautiful.
If you are:
(b) afraid of heights
(d) unfit, afraid of heights AND lazy
steer clear of the scenic route and opt for a taxi. Taxis in Italy are of course a little expensive, but the view from Castello di Vezio is well worth it. If you don't want to take a taxi both ways I suggest walking up and taking a taxi down, as the path looks a little daunting and could be quite dangerous after rain. N.B Always ask the price before getting into taxis!).
The castle is home to some birds of prey, which are fantastic to look at.
The only bizarre thing at the castle are sculptures of what seem to have been installed by the makers of Scary Movie...
You'll understand when you see my photos.
