1. Ski slopes: Livigno is well known for its 110+km of pistes (12 black, 37 red, and 29 blue). The ski areas rise up on both sides of the road and the two sides – Carosello and Mottolino – are linked by free buses. There are several beginner slopes for newbies to the sport while most of the pistes for intermediate and advanced skiers are above the tree line.
2. Snow:Livigno is located just a few kilometres from the Swiss border, meaning it is located in the heart of the Alps. Its high altitude ensures that the resort has a long snow season, lasting from the end of November until the beginning of May.
3. Duty-free status: For centuries, Livigno has enjoyed duty-free status, which truly makes it a worthwhile shopping spot. Shopping bargains to keep an eye out for include alcohol and tobacco, perfumes, cameras, computers and other electronic equipment, and leather and fur garments.
4. Restaurants and bars: After long days of skiing and exhausting yourself on the slopes, nothing beats a leisurely walk in town, having dinner at one of the many pizzerias or restaurants, enjoying after-dinner drinks with friends, and soaking up the bustling nightlife of Livigno.
