If you’re planning a ski trip, here you find the top 10 ski resorts in Italy.
Sorrounded by the Alpi Retiche, deep in the Alta Valtellina ski area, Bormio has more than 200 km of ski slopes and above 70 skilifts. Renowned for the “Stelvio” slope – the name comes from the national park nearby – and having hosted international ski tournaments more than once, the city won’t let you down after a day on the snow. Before diving into traditional dishes (pizziccheri and sciatt are a must-have) take some time to chill in one of the three thermal baths of the city: Old Baths (Bagni Vecchi) to maintain the tradition of the termae romanae, New Baths (Bagni Nuovi) for a seventeen century sauna and Bormio Terme to enjoy a complete spa.
WHERE TO EAT: Restaurant Hotel La Genzianella. Typical dishes in a refined atmosphere. Via Zandilla 6, 23032 Bormio (SO).
WHERE TO SLEEP: Hotel Larice Bianco. Relax nearby ski runs and thermal baths. Via Funivie 10, 23032 Bormio (SO).
ACTIVITIES: Stelvio National Park Bormio’s Thermal baths. Via Stelvio, 14 23032 Bormio (SO).
