Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The San Giovanni apartments are a great place to stay if you’re looking for a good self-catering option this winter. Have the luxury of your own space but with the option should you choose to, to use facilities at the main hotel. Here you’ll find a great bar and an outdoor terrace where you can watch the world go by or keep a look out for friends and family skiing back to the hotel. You’ll also benefit from a 15% discount at the hotel’s restaurant where they serve up great meals – it’s well known in Livigno as one of the best places for a hearty Italian pizza.

When you arrive at the apartment you’ll have a basic welcome pack, so take in the first views with a nice cuppa before exploring and getting in some supplies for the week ahead. The nearest supermarket is about 500 metres away. The apartments are located on the outskirts of the resort but you can easily hop on the free local bus and be in the centre of the action in no time at all. The resort is bustling with great places to eat, drink and shop. Best of all it’s tax free, so your money definitely goes that bit further. Take the opportunity to splash out and make the most of your holiday.

The Amerikan lift is just behind the apartments so you can get a couple of blue runs in before venturing a little further over onto the Carosello 3000 cable car. Once on-board it takes you just short of a thousand metres up the mountain where there are a great selection of red runs and, for the more adventurous, some good off-piste. 

Transfer time: approx. 3 hours from Innsbruck airport.

Fast becoming one of the most exciting ski resorts in the Alps, Livigno is making a big name for itself as now confirmed as one of the venues for the 2026 Olympics and it’s easy to see why. Sat not far from the Swiss border, this snow sure resort has an extensive, modern ski area whilst retaining the traditional character of its original three villages.

The town itself sits in the valley where either side of you, the mountains rise up creating two separate ski areas, all linked by the efficiently and free local buses circulating the resort. The unique layout means there are dedicated areas and lifts for beginners straight from resort level, while more experienced skiers and boarders can head to the top and enjoy a huge range of on and off-piste in the area as well as fun parks, boarder cross tracks and for those looking for some serious fun, head to the Mottolino snowpark which has hosted many international freestyle competitions.

Shoppers can take advantage along the traffic free streets in the centre of the resort as not only is there a great selection of shops to choose from, the resort interestingly since the 16th century and to this day holds a duty free status, meaning your money goes much further. Here you will also find a great selection of cafes, restaurants as well as a huge range of non-ski related activities from fat biking to husky sledding, plenty to keep you busy each day.

To end with, rumour has it the ‘Bombardino’ was created in Livigno, so when people ask us is the resort good for après, with around 150 bars to pick from, it most certainly is, possibly the best we have experienced in Italy but why not judge it for yourself and make this your next ski destination.
