ABOUT LIVIGNO: Livigno, at 1800m, is a summer training location for many elite athletes, including the Italian national marathon, cycling and rowing teams. It is known for its stunning beauty, climate and the amazing trails all of which have led it to be nicknamed “Little Tibet”. It is a great location for runners as there is a long, flat cycle path that runs for approximately 20km, so you can run on the “flat” whilst surrounded by the beautiful mountain scenery. And if you enjoy a little shopping, Livigno is a duty-free area, so purchased goods are all VAT free.
