Livigno has earned the reputation of being a party resort, a fun place to ski and a cheap place to go. Situated in Lombardy, Northern Italy, with the Dolomites bordering it to the south and the Alps to the North, it is also very close to the Swiss border and enjoys the status of being a tax free community. This came about from the olden days when the village's isolated location made it near enough impossible for tax inspectors to reach.
Livigno ski holidays are almost guaranteed to be snow sure due to the village's high altitude and it boasts good skiing facilities for all levels and abilities. There is 115 km of downhill skiing on offer with 29 beginner runs, 37 intermediate runs and 12 advanced runs. These are serviced by a total of 34 lifts comprising of 16 chairs, 14 drags, and 4 gondola cable cars. Cross country lovers also have access to 40 km of challenging trails. Snowboarders are frequently drawn to Livigno thanks to its 70 km of boarder friendly slopes and lively party atmosphere. Livigno is a good choice for beginners with a wide choice of gently sloping nursery slopes. Intermediates will enjoy the higher slopes whilst advanced skiers may like to take advantage of the Alta Valtellina pass which includes a day's skiing in the Swiss Engadine region.
About the village
Livigno is a lively resort thanks to its good skiing which goes hand in hand with its cheap prices. Its tax free status extends to the bars and so more often than not you'll find people ordering fun cocktails throughout the day. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants offering a mixture of traditional and modern Italian cuisine.
The nightlife here is very good with a large choice of venues including video bars such as Marco's, karaoke bars like Bivio and discotheques such as Cielo and Kokodi. Whilst the accommodation in Livigno is varied finding a truly luxurious hotel in Livigno may be slightly more difficult with the majority offering affordable 3-4 star status. It would be a sin to come here and not take advantage of the fantastic duty free shopping selling well known brands of designer clothing, jewellery and perfume.
