Livigno is one of the Alps’ most renowned tourism stations – 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.

This is why Livigno is paradise for anyone who LOVES HOLIDAYS CLOSE TO NATURE and wishes to spend time relaxing, breathing in fresh air and enjoying the mountain sunshine. All you need to feel great in Livigno is to take a look at the mountains that cradle the valley, and take in the impressive view of the mounts that roll gently from 3,000 to 1,800 meters.
