The town of Livigno sits in a valley very near the Swiss border, just south of the Swiss national park. It is popular with package tours with some bargain deals in shoulder-season. It has a reputation for its unusual tax-free status, which means as well as numerous hotels and restaurants there is also a good trade in electronics (eg cameras), perfumes etc. As with any popular package destination, nightlife is lively.
For a zoomable, scrollable map of the areas, see this online map using Openstreetmap or Opencyclemap.
Livigno is best reached by road, either from Milano or Verona from the south, from Switzerland's upper Engadine valley to the north, or from Bolzano in Südtirol to the east. Package tours from overseas will include coach travel from the airport, often Milano or Zürich.
The valley runs north-south, and the ski areas occupy the overlooking ridges on both sides. The majority of the runs are marked as reds but the resort is well geared up for beginners and is a popular cheap destination along with Andorra.
