Livigno – Italy

Compare this resort

As the crow flies Livigno is just a few kilometres away from the chic Swiss resort of Klosters, but the contrast between them is stark. Livigno was afforded tax-free status by the EEC in 1960 in order to help sustain a year-round population in the remote mountains, and nowadays it is one of the best value resorts in Italy with no VAT on anything. Livigno still maintains a traditional Alpine appearance with a friendly, lively feel. Free buses provide relatively reliable access from one end of the village to the other until mid-evening.
The remoteness of Livigno makes getting there quite tricky. The transfer time from Bergamo can be up to 5 hours, but regular visitors would argue that it is worth the effort. With altitude also comes snow reliability and the pistes on both sides of the resort have a great record late into the season

  1. Mountain hut dinners - go for a evening meal in a beautiful remote location.
  2. Bormio bath hot springs - Relax and unwind in a natural hot spring.
  3. Husky sledding - Be in charge of your own sled and team of excitable huskys.
  4. Ice driving - great fun, just like the boys on Top Gear!
  5. Fun Park - take the family for a great fun day out for everyone

The new face of Livigno

Livigno – you may well think if it in the same way as I do; or used to. This is probably summed up by the brief description of the skiing here on the Ski Club of Great Britain’s website, which tells us: ‘There are three key ski areas - Carosello, Costaccia and Mottolino - which provide varied terrain for beginners and intermediates but little for expert skiers.’
