Breuil-Cervinia Restaurants

  • Get your own picnic!

    The picnic area is nice and big. You can enjoy a cheap meal (the one you take with you!) with coffee or refreshments you can buy close. The landscape is amazing and you are 100 meters from the lanes. I recommend to buy bread on the way to the resort or in the village where the hotels and apartments are, and fill it with something you previously...

    Skiing in cervinia is mainly blue /red runs on wide pistes. When we went half term week there was very little queuing. Despite little snow in Italy at the time most runs open and snow reasonable, presumably due to the high altitude.
    Big negative is the wind which closed the lifts on one day and apparently is not uncommon.
    Can get cold at the top when wind is strong.
    Enough skiing for one week only although can ski over to Zermatt if weather ok.
