First European Nature Park

Enjoy the “Wow!” experiences of the winter in Limone Piemonte

Frolicking in the Snow

Young novice skiers will have a fun time with their first attempts at skiing down the sunny practice slopes in San Secondo-Maneggio, which can be easily accessed from the town centre by foot or shuttle bus. These slopes are also tailor-made for many hours of excitement with sleds or bobsleds. Parent alert! This area is the ideal spot to get some sun and savour authentic local food.

Crunching Snow Underfoot

If you never did snowshoeing before, you are in for a treat. Take a certified guide or take off on your own and stomp over gently rolling hills, along crystal-clear brooks in a pristine winter wonderland. It is physical and you’re sure to work up an appetite. But don’t worry! Many Alpine huts along the trails will silence that growl in your stomach with tasty refreshments.

Skiing for People with Handicaps

For many years now, the Limone 1400 ski area has worked with Sport ABILI Alba to create skiing opportunities for people with disabilities. Specially trained ski teachers support, train and/or accompany people with any type of physical impairment. Two wheel-chair accessible Alpine huts invite you for a cosy lunch with family and friends.

Skiing with Vistas of the Mediterranean Sea

Limone features more than 80 km of slopes at altitudes between 1,000 and 2,000 m, 3 access points to get to the ski area, a large assortment of places to stop and sample authentic local food and stunning panoramic views – all the way to the Mediterranean when the weather is clear!

Premium Pearl for TRAVEL BY TRAIN

You are looking for a getaway place in the Italian Alps that is easily accessible by train? It may surprise you, but there are not many such places. And even less common are villages with train station along international rail routes. Limone is one such town, which makes it a special gently mobile holiday destination. But that’s not all. You’ll be spoilt for choice. Should you hike or go mountain biking? Or should you rather go to the sea? You have it all in Limone! Many delightful tourist attractions in Piedmont are easily reached by train. Or you’d rather spend some joyful hours on the Ligurian beach? Just hop on the train and, within 2 hours, you can walk barefoot on the beach.

Premium Pearl for MOUNTAIN BIKING

Do you rely 100% on your own physical strength or would you rather have some electric support? Either way is fine here in Limone. With or without e-support, mountain bikers will delight in thrilling tours and single trails stretching all the way from the mountains to the coastline. Take the historic “Via del Sale” route to bike all the way to Ventimiglia and the Cote d’Azur. One of the highlights of your holiday will surely be the MTB Marathon Gran Fondo Via del Sale, which takes place end of June. And if you’re a fan of technically challenging or super-fast downhill trails, no worries! You will get your money’s worth. These downhill trails are built to get your adrenalin going. Read more!
