If you will be in Italy, you should definitely visit Limone. Limone is one of Italy’s oldest ski areas, and it is a very old village with a twelfth century church and many other old buildings. The town is located near the French border, and is only about thirty miles from Nice.
At Limone, you will experience a real taste of old Italy. The nightlife has a lot to offer, and the gourmet food is out of this world! Food and skiing are everything here – with more than fifty restaurants, and 46 ski runs. The top elevation is 6689 with a vertical drop of 3033 feet. Most of the runs are best suited to intermediate skiers, with a few that are suitable for beginners and experts. There are twenty seven lifts, including seven chair lifts and twenty surface lifts.
Remember that the village is very old – and the locales like it that way. If you prefer high technology and modern buildings, Limone probably isn’t for you. But if you want to truly experience Italy, Limone must be on your list of places to visit in Italy.
