Livigno is located in the Italian Alps, I was able to enjoy holidays there and would like to bring you closer to the diversity of this lovely spot.
Within a few hours you can reach the beautiful Livigno by car from Zurich. In winter Livigno is a popular ski resort, in summer the ideal place for a having break of our everyday life and do some outdoor sport.
On the first day of my trip, the Sentiero Gourmet took place, a pleasure trail, where while 5 km in the beautiful alpine scenery and elaborately staged service places there were all sorts of deliciousness to enjoy. It started with antipasti, afterwards the Primi, Piatto Mezzo, Secondi were served and to the sweet end the dessert.
The Sentiero Gourmet took place for the second time this year. A really great idea to enjoy a dinner differently. The small hikes between the aisles are a welcome break.
For sporty guests, Livigno has a lot to offer, besides the bike and hiking trails, there is a rope park for the daring, a golf training court and sport on the lake is possible.
On the second day of my trip, I did not miss to play golf. But it’s not as simple as it may look. In any case, I had my fun while practicing.
The Museum of Livigno and Trepalle offers a variety of sporting activities. It shows how the former mountain village population lived. Until 1960 this old house was still inhabited. A really impressive museum, which shows the living conditions at earlier time. After visiting the museum I went to the Aquagranda, a water and wellness park for the whole family with slides and other attractions. Especially the wellness area has done it to me.
The hotel Camana Veglia was my residence during the entire trip. The four-star hotel combines tradition with modernity and so you will find all sorts of details that can not be forgotten that Livigno is located in the Alps.
Rustic but with lots of charm and a homey atmosphere through lots of wood and cute details. Each room is differently designed. I was allowed to stay in the romantic room.
The many lovely details make this hotel very special and you feel as a guest already on arrival day at home. Also the village with the beautiful wooden houses spreads pure Alpine feeling.
As already mentioned, Livigno is a popular holiday destination for sporty people, especially in summer for bikers. So I did not let it take me and tooked a bike to tour around the mountains.
In the beautiful mountain scenery an absolute must, there are different bike trails, which offer both professionals as well as families or sporty peoples a possibility to be active.
This is worth it just because of the wonderful view. If you prefer walking or hiking, you can also use the gondola lift and then walk down to the village, or, of course, vice versa.
Also a walk to the lake is definitely worth it. If the sea level is high enough there is also the possibility to do some sports on the lake, like Pedalo or stand up paddle. Otherwise, the lake is also great as a photo motif;) No, I’m not photoshopped into the picture, even if it may look almost like.
Let’s talk about a very popular leisure activity, shopping. Because Livigno is a true shopping paradise, why? Livigno is duty-free area, which means you can shop there cheap as at the airport. In the village, there are numerous perfumeries, opticians, clothes and shoe shops. On 15 July, the Notte Bianca was held here too, where it was possible to shop until midnight and also music, food and much entertainment were offered in the village.
Now I am already at the end of my travel report, I hope I could bring you the beauty and variety of Livigno in the Italian Alps a little bit closer. It is not always necessary to go to the beach, the mountains offer at least as much action and recreation.
