During Valentines day weekend we headed to the Italian Alps for a ski vacation. We flew into Milan and then drive about an hour and a half to Madonna Di Campiglio (The Domomites).
The town of Madonna Di Campiglio is such a quaint cute area with beautiful views everywhere you look. The lifts were just about a 3 minute walk from our hotel (Hotel Alpina). I loved our hotel it was in the center of town right beside the best restaurant (Le Roi, so good we ate there twice). Hotel Alpina was a family run hotel and we enjoyed having a nightcap everynight in the hotel bar chatting with the bartender.
With me not being a great skier I loved being on a ski trip in Italy as you had the awesome skiing combined with great food and wine. Even the lunch stops on the mountain were AMAZING food and even netter views (Rifugio Viviani). The first day I sat enjoying wine and the amazing views while Matt checked out the slopes for me the only to report back that even the easiest slopes were not too easy at all. Regardless I went out the second day and had a great time! Compared to the slopes in the US it was like there was no one on the mountain, you would barely see anyone at all on a run, it was great!
The day we left there was a lot of snow which made for a beautiful drive back to Milan through beautiful small Italian villages.
Here are some pictures from our amazing Italian skication! Ciao!
