Here are a few reasons to visit Madonna di Campiglio in Italy:

1. If you like your pistes groomed to perfection Madonna di Campiglio is one of the best resorts in the world. Great skiing from excellent nursery slopes to classic blacks. However, Madonna di Campiglio is primarily an intermediate skier's paradise.

Food


Resort Restaurants

There is plenty of variety but the following are recommended; Da Alfiero, La Tana dell Orso, Stube Rosengarten, Belvedere, Antico Focolare, Roi, Stube Diana and Locanda degli Aritisti. Most of the hotels have excellent restaurants we like the food at both the Chalet DV and the Bio Hotel Hermitage.

Mountain Restaurants

We recommend the restaurant Cascina Zeledria which can be found in the trees off blue run number 7 below Pradalago (off piste 54 just above Fortini lift). At the top of Pradalago there is also a nice little resaurant called Viviani. Other restaurants we recommend are the Cinque Laghi and Malga Montagnoli which is in the lower part of Groste and finally Stopani at top of Groste lift.

Apres Ski

There is some apres with Stube di Franz-Joseph, Bar Suisse, Bacchus Enoteca and The Alpes - all well worth a visit.

Nightlife

The nightlife is fairly tame although there are enough bars to keep the 'night owls' content.
