Bormio (1225 m a.s.l.), the ancient Count, also called the "Magnifica
Terra" (“Wanderland”), owes its fortune to its geographical positon, a strategic
corridor for transalpine communications. Nature, sport, snow, well-being,
culture and flavours ...Where? In Bormio, of course. More than 50 kilometres of
ski runs with good covering of snow in winter and the possibility to ski in
summertime too within the fascinating environment of the Stelvio Pass
(2758-3420 masl). The hot springs, known since the ancient Roman time, have
been completely renovated with modern and professional plants and facilities to
enhance the thousand-year-old ritual "salus per aquam". Moments of
pure relax, as it already was at the beginning of the Twentieth Century at the Terme
di Bormio and the nearby Bagni Vecchi and Bagni Nuovi thermal baths in Valdidentro.
The whole area is part of the Stelvio National Park with its extraordinary unspoiled
nature. The nearby Stelvio, Gavia and Mortirolo passes make this area a real
paradise for all keen bikers. The most legendary pages of cycling were written here.
Do not miss to visit the town centre of the "Magnifica Terra"
situated in the heart of the Alps, walking through narrow old streets, among
churches, villas and towers that tell us the splendours of the noble Count. The
bound with ancient traditions is still strong thanks to the traditional events that
the local community renews every year: the Pasquali and the Carneval di Mat.
