Piccolo Tibet - Livigno
In 1887, Antonio Cederna, president of the Milan section of the Italian Alpine Club, said: "If Livigno had a passable road connecting them to Bormio and Poschiavo, it would become the second Davos." These were prophetic words, but it took almost a century to build the Munt la Schera tunnel connecting Livigno with Switzerland. From the very beginning, there is one-way (shuttle) traffic in it, and you can pay for the ride only in cash and only in euros or Swiss francs. After the tunnel was opened, the town changed beyond recognition - it was first and foremost loved by winter sports enthusiasts. So much so that it even received the "SnowTrex Award 2012" distinction. No wonder, the snow cover stays here for up to 7 months, and the resort is called Europe's Tibet or Italian Tibet, because it is the place with the highest sunshine in the whole Alps. For this reason, tourists especially like it, for whom the guarantee of nice weather is important.
