Italian winter holidays in Alta Valtellin

The Italian ski area Alta Valtellina is part of the Lombardia region and the large Alpine region of Valtellina. A significant part of the territory is occupied by the picturesque Stelvio National Park. This area brings together five small but popular ski resorts, namely Santa Katarina, Bormio, Valdidentro, Livigno, and Stelvio. These resorts are united by a single ski pass (ski passes), as well as a free ski bus.

Santa Katerina is located in the national park with a small resort. Its main advantage is that the main ski area is a gentle slope of the mountain range, offering excellent opportunities for freeriding. Bormio is popular for a solid elevation of 1,800 meters. Middle-level riders come here, for whom there are many “red” tracks. Not far from Bormio is a quiet and peaceful Valdidentro, famous for its long trails through a picturesque forest. In addition, this resort is known for its thermal springs. The busiest of the resorts in the region is Livigno with 70 kilometers of slopes and 30 lifts. Poti all tracks lie above 2,000 meters.

Trips around Rimini

Wide sandy beaches, unique Italian cuisine, various entertainments, interesting excursions – all this offers relaxation in Rimini. The transport network of the city is so well developed that without problems you can independently go to any city in Italy. And if travel agencies offer only a small selection of the most popular cities in the country (Rome, Venice, Florence, Verona), then an independent travel has no territorial restrictions and will be no less exciting and more economical than a ready-made travel package. In particular, in the vicinity of Rimini there are many interesting cities and natural attractions, the road to which will take 25-70 km, which does not hurt to enjoy a day trip and beach holidays.

Rimini and Fellini

In addition to sandy beaches, various shopping and interesting excursions, there is another reason to come to the small resort town of Rimini – this is the birthplace of the great film director of the 20th century Federico Fellini. It was in Rimini that he was born, grew up, and here his eventful life ended. And although Federico left Rimini in his youth, he carried through his whole life his love for this city. So his film Amarkord was shot in Rimini and is dedicated to the director’s childhood city. And the city itself is very proud of this famous person, this can only be understood once in Rimini – the international airport is named after the filmmaker. In addition to the huge port, cobbled streets and squares, cozy cafes where everything is saturated with the spirit of a film director, there are several places, one way or another dedicated to Fellini.
