Do you enjoy both sunny, cold skiing and cheap, hot shopping? Then the choice of the ski resort is given - Livigno combines the best of both!

Livigno is located in a valley surrounded by high mountains. In the 16th century they wanted to reward those who lived in isolated areas and this resulted in tax exemptions. This has actually survived and the village is thus a tax free zone - but today it is obviously no longer isolated.
