The medieval town of Bormio surrounded by spectacular peaks lies near the Swiss border, not too far from St Moritz. The site of the 2005 Alpine World Championship, the resort offers world-class trails and facilities, with high speed lifts, snow making and quaint mountain restaurants. The Bormio lift pass is also valid in Livigno, a duty-free town and resort close to the Swiss border within an hour’s drive.
The old village or Bormio is a pedestrian zone with small town shops, quaint restaurants, markets connected by busy streets leading to the best hotels, restaurants and the ski area. This town has thrived for centuries because of its thermal waters discovered and developed first by the Etruscans and Romans and eventually enjoyed by succeeding civilizations. There is an ancient spa which has developed through Roman, Medieval and the Imperial eras. Located above the town, and built in the mountain side, it offers a true experience of going back in time amidst of the original walls several centuries old. A new modern spa with the same thermal waters has been built in the town.
The après ski and night life will fill your late afternoon and evening hours with a true taste of Italian ambiance and atmosphere. Why not combine a winter sport vacation with experiencing history, thermal waters, exclusive shopping of Italian fashion, Italian food and wine all into one destination?
