In its 211 km2, Livigno encompasses many souls: some have their roots in the history and traditions of the resort, others have been consolidated in recent years and have their sights set on the future and innovation, and still others allow one to explore the Valtellina destination through the senses...

The combination of these many facets, which satisfy the passions of adults and children from all over the world, makes Little Tibet the ideal choice for a high-altitude holiday surrounded by the white snow, which each year decorates the area, tinging it white and transforming it into a fairy-tale world.

Livigno's active side is one of the most internationally known, thanks also to the Five Circles dream that will become reality in just two years with the freestyle and snowboard competitions, which will be held in the ski area of the resort.
If skiing and snowboarding are among the disciplines most appreciated by winter sports enthusiasts, there is no lack of other options for physical activity in contact with the snow in Little Tibet: sports enthusiasts can practice cross country skiing on the 30 km track that starts in the Forcola and Alpe Vago area, but also go ski touring or snowshoeing, penetrating into the woods on the 'managed trails', paths created by the freeride project team that are constantly monitored. Fun on two wheels is guaranteed by fat bikes, while those who want to experience new things can try ice climbing, ice skating or paragliding.

Enogastronomy is one of Livigno's souls that brings together young and old, especially after a day spent in the midst of nature and in contact with the snow.
In the wide selection of bars and restaurants in the pedestrianised centre, but also in the valley's mountain huts, everyone will be able to traditional specialities - including the not-to-be-missed sciatt and pizzoccheri, taroz, bresaola and grilled meat combined with polenta - of the grilled meat combined with polenta, real musts for stays in Valtellina - but also gourmet proposals, perfect for those in search of innovative dishes with sophisticated flavours.
The leitmotif of Livigno's gastronomic culture is the quality of the products and the authenticity of the raw materials, meticulously selected by the local chefs and then used in the different courses to satisfy all palates, even the most demanding palates.
In addition, for food lovers who like to put themselves to the test at home there is the bilingual photographic book "Leina da Saor", created by the Association of Chefs and Pastry Chefs and published by Mondadori, which contains 100 traditional recipes, 37 revisited revisited and over 250 photographs.

Shopping is also one of the most characteristic aspects of the Valtellina resort: Livigno is home to over 250 shops, exclusive boutiques and single-brand boutiques offering a selection of the most prestigious brands in fashion, beauty technology, sports and much more that will delight adults and children alike, whatever their passions. An activity leisure activity that also combines the possibility of feeling the energy of Livigno while strolling along the pedestrian centre, not only observing the numerous shop windows but also enjoying the wonderful view of the snow-capped peaks of the
surrounding mountains.

The MUS! Museum of Livigno and Trepalle, located in an old Livigno house, is the ideal place for those who want to
deepen their knowledge of the history and culture of the area and wants to take a journey through time starting from as far back as 1187, the year in which Livigno is mentioned for the first time in an official document.

Livigno's past, punctuated by warm summers and winters full of fresh snow, is a treasure that is guarded, handed down and celebrated by its citizens, who at the same time look towards the future and innovation with new high-tech services, thus also emphasising its tech soul, which includes much more than shops where one can buy the best technological equipment for every need and hobby. In Livigno, in fact, there are many hi-tech novelties that visitors can try out for themselves, such as the golf simulator, present in Plaza Placheda, which gives the possibility of practising this indoor sport all year round, and the virtual reality snorkelling experience present in Aquagranda: DIVR®, thanks to cutting-edge multi-sensory technology, allows guests to transport themselves digitally into four breathtaking digital scenarios: Ocean, Atlantis, Space and Sky.

But Aquagranda is also the place where one can dedicate oneself to one's all-round well-being, especially after a day on the resort's 74 slopes, and the heart of Livigno's wellness soul. The Wellness&Relax area, characterised by an alpine style, presents different areas designed to take care of oneself and also cabins for various treatments... A moment of relaxation with a privileged view of Livigno's mountains.
