Livigno is one of the Alps’ most renowned tourism stations – THE VALTELLINA’S FLAGSHIP RESORT – and is set between the Stelvio National Park and the Swiss National Park. Over the decades the town has flawlessly preserved its environmental, natural and architectural characteristics. Way has been made for modernity but always in keeping with the local culture and traditions, and maintaining the surrounding areas as pristine as ever.
