Nestled between the Stelvio National Park and the Swiss National Park stands the famous town of Livigno, about 40 km from Bormio, in the province of Sondrio. Renowned ski resort at over 1500 m asl Livigno hits the visitor for breathtaking slopes and places dedicated to fun and entertainment. Livigno is in fact the favorite destination for shoppers. There are many boutiques and shops that offer the most diverse ideas and enjoy a tax advantage. The municipality of Livigno is also a "free port", as it enjoys a facilitated tax regime that makes it exempt from the payment of taxes and duties. The reason is determined by the geographical position of the city: the small Alpine municipality in fact is located in the center between the Italian and Swiss territory and since the time of Napoleon Bonaparte enjoyed special benefits and benefits. Today in Livigno there are over 250 stores dedicated to sport, clothing and watches, as well as classic liquors and tobaccos, which can be purchased with precise limits of quantity and expenditure determined by law.
The city of Livigno is well connected to the main towns of the province and is easily reachable by car from the municipalities of Milan, Lecco and Sondrio.
To reach Livigno from Milan it is necessary to reach the town of Lecco and continue through the Foscagno mountain pass, where frequent snowfalls throughout the year suggest having snow chains on board at least from October to May.
The city of Livigno does not have a city train station. Therefore, there are no direct connections with the cities of Milan, Lecco and Sondrio. The nearest station is Tirano (about 70 km from Livigno), which provides connections with Milan-Central Station and Milan-Porta Garibaldi.
During the "high season" periods, several private transport companies provide bus connections from Livigno to the municipalities of Milan and Bormio.
