Madonna di Campiglio – renowned throughout Italy and Europe as one of the few ski resorts “that got it right”. A perfect mix of ski-by-day-and-party-by-night atmosphere. Discreet, elegant and hidden away at an altitude of 1550 meters in a valley between the Brenta Dolomites and the glaciers of Adamello and Presanella. Madona di Campiglio has evolved into Italy’s most popular ski resort.

The Ski Area boasts 57 lifts and 150 kilometers of ski runs which can accommodate an incredible 31,000 people per hour. Add to that a 50,000 square meter snow-park, 40 kilometers of space set aside for Nordic skiing and 3 ski schools, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a holiday in-the-making.

The area surrounding Madonna di Campiglio offers skiers of every level a variety of runs and degrees of difficulty.

The center of town offers a little bit of everything: from shopping to cafe’s and restaurants to night spots and more. You’ll make the transition from slicing through white powder during the day to sipping spiced wine in the evening.

With good reason Madonna di Campiglio is called the “Pearl of the Dolomites”. But the only thing you’ll wonder is why you didn’t come here sooner.
