Livigno is a beautiful town, surrounded by 3,000 high peaks of the Alps. This location gives Livigno the appearance of being a small European Tibet. Livigno is a favorite destination of PRO cyclists due to its endless training options at high altitudes, which helps them to increase blood production and get in their best shape for their most important races of the season.
Natural beauty, the warm Italian atmosphere and delicious food will make you enjoy every minute of your stay. Livigno is accessible through numerous cycling paths winding through the beautiful side valleys of the Alta Valtellina. These, and other itineraries, are in fact the theater of the summer of 2005, the World Mountain Bike Championships.

Lago Nero & Bianco
Two lakes next to each other with totally different colors. The white lake is fed by glacial meltwater, also known as glacial milk, which contains silt. This gives the lake its milky white color. The black lake, Lago Nero, is fed by small streams free from glacier meltwater. This gives the water its blue or dark-blue to black color.
