A lot of people spend hours online researching how to get to Livigno. Although Livigno is very easy to get too, the costs can add up if you get to the airport outside of the shuttle hours. We have put some notes on the various airports to use as well as the pro’s & con’s of each one.
Most people fly into either Milan Bergamo (BGY), Milan Linate (LIN) or Milan Malpensa (MXP) where we have shuttle coaches running every saturday during the ski season to and from the airports. The shuttle coaches only run to & from Milan Bergamo & Milan Malpensa during other days and not Milan Linate.
We also offer private transfers for all size groups 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. If there is just a small group travelling, the airport shuttle we offer is always the best value for money and for this you would need to arrive and depart at certain times to time the shuttle coaches, however if you are in a large group the shuttle coaches are still an option but we can also offer private transfers as this can be just as cost effective for larger groups.
It’s always best to send us an email on email@example.com before you book your flights if you want to make sure that they are ok to meet the shuttle coaches.
Pro’s – cheap flights usually available to all 3 airports – roads kept clear during snowfall as it’s a main route
Tip – if you are driving upto Tirano, from here some sat nav’s will direct you to go through Switzerland to Livigno via the Forcola Pass, this pass is CLOSED during the winter months. You need to continue on the main road from Tirano to Bormio, then from here onto Livigno (via Foscagno Pass)
A few people will use the Airport in Innsbruck (INN). The shuttle service from here is only on a Saturday during the ski season and only certain weeks so make sure you check before booking flights
Pro’s – shorter transfer
Con’s – Both the road from Livigno to Switzerland and Innsbruck airport itself, are much more liable to closure or diversions – Transfers are more expensive than Milan and so are the flights normally
In Switzerland you can also fly into Zurich (ZRH) airport. Like Milan some good deals can be found on flights. For the transfers, there are no shuttle coaches from Zurich to Livigno so a private transfer is the best option or another option is to take the train. Although the route is very scenic, it does involve taking 2/3 trains then a bus which in total will take about 5 hours.
Pro’s – scenic journey
Con’s – more hassle shifting the suitcases from train to train etc if you want a relaxing journey
This is another option for the transfers although do keep in mind the following when renting a car
Other important information
For people who will be travelling through the “Munt Schera Tunnel”, remember this is a one way tunnel where the direction of travel is alternated throughout the day. Email us if you are unsure before booking flights etc
We hope these tips on how to get to Livigno help you with your travels and we can help take the stress out by organising all the transfers for you should you need a shuttle bus or a private transfer.
