Drinks on us
The Hotel Galli is without a doubt one of the best small hotels in Livigno and the location couldn't be better - right in the heart of the San Rocco area and directly opposite the ski school lift. Access to the Carosello side of the mountain is ultra-quick and easy.
This is a firm favourite for many of our guests who like to relax in the cosy bar area enjoying an aperitivo or head to the relaxing wellness area to soothe tired muscles after a big day on the slopes. There's sports and beauty. And if you're looking to hit the weights or get a run in, there's the fitness room as well to keep you busy!
After a bit of relaxation, head to the hotel's restaurant for a delicious and filling buffet evening meal. Or for a treat, try the hotel's Il Cenacolo restaurant for a culinary delight, it's a very popular restaurant for a good reason. After that, the night is yours to explore this lively resort. Families will also be pleased to hear that the hotel has a babysitting service available on request. They also happily provide games and toys for children staying at the hotel.

Livigno is a charming, traditional alpine village with a friendly and cosmopolitan vibe right on the Swiss border. It's a vibrant place that's still a bit of a secret to many. It's a resort that has something to please everyone, so you'd better plan your visit before the secret gets out!
The resort itself sits on the valley floor with the ski runs on either side of the town. Even though the 115km runs doesn't sound like much, there's tons to do here. It's more like North America in that you can pretty much ski or snowboard anywhere.
Beginners will be kept happy thanks to the excellent English speaking ski schools while intermediates will relish the large number of blue and red runs. 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.
The lively après-ski scene suits many tastes. You'll find traditional Italian restaurants serving inexpensive local cuisine, fantastic pizzerias and rockin' bars and pubs for something a bit more exciting. Try Marcos and Daphne's pub for a pint of Guinness, or dance the night away in the resort nightclubs. And of course there's the duty-free shopping - you'll definitely want to leave room in your suitcase on the way out!
