Livigno

Livigno in Italy is tucked away on the Swiss border with its own micro-climate and tax-free status. It's a charming, traditional alpine village with a friendly, cosmopolitan vibe that's still a bit of a secret, so plan your visit before the secret gets out.

 

Intermediate skiers will love the great number of blue and red runs scattered all across both sides of the valley. Beginners will be just as happy thanks to the excellent English speaking ski schools.

At a glance...
  • 115km ski area
  • Vibrant and bustling nightlife
  • Duty-free shopping
  • Great for beginners & freeriding
  • Saturday flying from Gatwick or Manchester
  • 2 hour 30 minute transfer

On top of that, the pedestrian centre consists of three kilometres of bars, restaurants and duty-free shops for when you're not carving up the slopes.

 

Try Marcos and Daphne’s pub for a pint of Guinness, or dance the night away in one of the resort's nightclubs. And of course there’s that duty-free shopping - you'll definitely want to leave some space in your suitcase on the way out.

On the mountain

115km may not sound like a big area, but you won't be disappointed. Livigno is split into two separate ski areas on either side of the valley. The ski and snowboard school is award-winning and beginners will start out on the gentle nursery slopes at the base of the Carosello area.

 

Improvers will relish the endless wide cruising reds and blues, not to mention the lovely little refugios; perfect for lunchtime stops. Advanced levels will want to check out the slopes of Monte Della Neve to really push themselves or try the massive and accessible freeride areas. Freestylers will love the Mottolino Snow Park; it's enormous!

Off the mountain

The après scene here is really lively with something to suit all tastes. Eating out is a pleasure thanks to the abundance of restaurants. There's over 100 bars, so whether you want a quiet night chatting over a bottle of Italian red or dancing in your ski boots until the early hours, there's something for you.

 

For laid-back and low key, try the aperitivo bars. On the other end of the spectrum are the live music venues and pubs like Marco's Bar (legendary).

Families & kids in Livigno

Livigno is a super family friendly resort, reflecting the Italian importance on family. The resort is flat and easy to navigate plus the free ski bus runs from 8am to 8pm every day and takes buggies.

 

There’s a fair amount of child-friendly activities like tobogganing, husky dog rides, horse riding and ice skating. Don't miss the family-only slopes and a kids' terrain park with mini jumps, gullies and even an obstacle course!
