Madonna di Campiglio Things to Do

  • The little church

    As we were exploring the village, we stumbled upon this little church. Next to the forest it had a lovely location.

  • Guide Alpine monument

    Standing in the centre of the village, I am not sure if this has been erected for those that fell victim to the mountain or for those that conquered it.

  • The forest

    We loved to wander around in the forest and enjoy the birds and was hoping to see some other wildlife.

    more
  • Walking in the forest

    Walking in the forest can be a lovely experience, but remember that you must make sure that you have a map, warm clothing and something to drink with you. Also make sure that someone knows that you have gone hiking so that they can look for you in case of emergency.

  • snow shoeing

    I had my reservations when invited to take the last cable car to the top of a mountain in the middle of February then walk down in snow shoes as the sun went down. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was actually great fun. About 20 of us went up with 2 alpine guides who took us into deep snow fields and down mountain tracks. We stopped at a...

  • chilling out

    Right in the centre of town is Piazza Righi, where you will find Bar Suisse. This is a great place to stop off after, during or before hitting the slopes. Try a bombardino, or cafe correto.Sit out on the piazza and watch the world go. They have great pannini which always go down well with a cold beer. During the evenings, it gets packed.

    The Grand Hapsburg Ball is held every February, recalling the days when Emperor Franz Josef and the Empress Sissi patronised Madonna di Campiglio. There is a full week of events leading up to this climax. Well worth a visit at this time of year.

Madonna di Campiglio Restaurants

  • good all round local restaurant

    This is a pretty good, inexpensive(by Madonna standards)place to eat. There is an extensive menu offering regional dishes along with a large selection of pizzas. Great wines at reasonable prices - several from the local vineyards.

  • cook it yourself

    this little gem is packed to the gunnels almost every night during the winter ski season.A short taxi ride from the centre of town takes you to the snow line, where you are transferred into a half track and literally driven up the mountain. After dinner you're taken back to join your taxi. This is a mountain restaurant in the true sense o the...

Madonna di Campiglio Transportation

  • exclusive bus service

    Only been during the ski season, but found the easiest service is from Verona Airport. During the season, Madonna di Campiglio lays on a service every Saturday from Verona Airport, directly to your hotel. To acass this service, just let your hotel know and they will reserve your seats. Just come out of the Airport concourse and look for a luxury...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you love tablecloths,handtowels, place mats etc with the little Austrian boy/girl designs then this is the place where you will still find it. I thought it went off the market so was extremely pleased to find it here again at very reasonable prices.
