The identity of Valtellina in its lifestyle
Visiting somewhere also means savouring its pace of life. A journey through little mountain hamlets, folklore and tourist-centric facilities.
For those who love shopping, Valtellina offers unique retail experiences. One of the best-known is Livigno, a huge open-air shopping mall, with more than 250 stores set against the fabulous backdrop of the Alps.
Livigno is home to the main fashion stores, with exclusive and single-brand boutiques, quality bespoke oulets and those linked to both tradition and modernit; all cosecreted by the elite labels and with a vast assortment of the main brand names. One big advantage is the good value of duty free purchases (product limits can be checked).
It is worth stopping in Bormio as well for some retail therapy: its central via Romais packed with fashion boutiques. Stop in Tirano, with its shops in the old town centre, and in Sondrio, on a quest for glamour purchases or excellent food and wine products, accompanied by personalized advice from the local retailers. Finally, Morbegno and Chiavenna, with their lovely little shops and typical stores in their beautiful, pedestrianized old town centres.
