Why Ski Livigno?

Affectionately called as the heart of the Italian Tibet by ski enthusiasts, it features great apres ski and assures skiing all year round. Located in the province of Sondrio, in the Lombardy region in Italy, part of the Italian Alps, Livigno is much affordable as compared to other high-altitude ski destinations, but going there is a little bit of a challenge. One good thing about this place is that it is completely tax free and it also retains a quaint Alpine environment. The ski domain is comprised of three villages, namely, San Antonio, San Roco, and Santa Maria. All in all, Livigno is cheap and has longer travel time, but despite the isolation, it is still worth the try.

Long travel time

Reaching Livigno usually ends up as a mission since going there consumes longer travel time. The major airports that can be used as starting points are Milan and Zurich. Other airports include Bergamo, Milan Malpesa and minor airports such as Tirano and Zernez. Road transfer from the nearest airport is four to five hours away. Rail travel is an easy ride and you can take one from the UK taking the route to Zuric and Zernez following the quick trip from Paris. There is also an evening sleeper train coming from Paris going to Tirano and Zernes area. Buses from the final train stations usually bring you to the resort. If you are travelling by car, the final leg of going to the ski area is a rough road, so it is advisable to put snow gears and snow tires on your car before taking the final road to the ski domain.
