Deep in the Alta Valtellina mountains sits Livigno, an isolated but full-of-life ski resort. The town lies in a valley with the ski area spread over the surrounding mountains on either side and linked via a free shuttle bus. There are dedicated areas for children and beginners, whilst more experienced skiers and boarders can head up the mountains and enjoy a huge range of on and off-piste terrain. Not only is the resort traffic free, it is also duty free meaning your money goes much further. Livigno has a huge selection of cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs and is known for its fantastic après ski.
