Livigno is a valley, town and commune in the Lombardy region of Italy.

Understand[edit]

Valley overview

The area is basically a 12-km long street full of shops and housings, surrounded by mountains full of ski slopes and hiking trails.

Livigno enjoys a special tax status as a duty-free area. Italian VAT (Value Added Tax) is not paid. Buying full tank of gas here, before going to Switzerland, pays off. However, this also means that especially the Swiss border control may require you to pay tax when importing non-trivial amounts of liquors and such.

Get in[edit]

Either from Switzerland side via 1 Bernina Pass, or 2 Munt la Schera tunnel - or from Italy from 3 Bormio

Get around[edit]

Livigno has four free bus lines (blue, green, red and yellow) every hour from 07:30 to 20:00.

The blue and green lines are managed by Silvestribus, connecting all major hotels with lifts and the center of the city.

Extra connections are available in high season.

See[edit]

  • 1 Lake Gallo (Lake Livigno). Artificial lake at the border with Switzerland which has a capacity of 164 million m³, thanks to the Punt da Gall dam, built between 1965 and 1968.
  • 2 Parish Church of Santa Maria Nascente. The construction of the first church dates back to about 1300 AD and is that of Santa Maria Nascente. In the following centuries the churches were made up of S. Antonio, S. Rocco, S. Anna in Trepalle, Florin's Sorrows, Immaculate of Lourdes at Tresenda, Additonal in Val Federia, Blessed Virgin of Caravaggio and Immaculate of Viera. Apart from the first, which was subsequently consecrated as a parish church, all the others are small in size but rich in small details that make them unique and interesting to visit.
