How to get there
A fairly remote place when compared to the major cities in Italy, Livigno is situated nearly 125 miles from both Zurich and Milan, the nearest airport destinations. From London, the easiest option to reach the village is via air. Some of the major airlines that offer seamless services are EasyJet, Air Berlin, British Airways and Ryan Air. These airlines depart from all major British airports, including London City, Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted. On arrival at Zurich or Milan Bergamo airport, you can transfer to Livigno by train, bus or rental vehicle. Since both these airports are almost equidistant from the village, the transport time is more likely to be the same. You can also travel to Livigno from London by train. Though your journey would be prolonged by several hours, train is a convenient option too.
