Why is Livigno a duty-free area?
The benefits for Livigno started in 1538. The Bormio community gave to Livigno the autonomy for the use of the pastures and the woods and other particular benefits. During the years, the distance between Livigno and the other localities permitted the continuation of the advantages.
In fact, until the winter of 1952 Livigno had no communication routes during the cold season and the village was isolated from the others cities. That year was inaugurated the Foscagno Pass, and the development of Livigno as a tourist and ski village took start.
So, today Livigno is still a duty-free area, and it is very convenient to buy a lot of products in the many shops you will find there. In Livigno you will not pay the VAT tax, and you will find very cheap, for example, gasoline, sugar, cigarettes, wine and alcohol, perfumes and cosmetics, electronic objects and many more.
