Madonna di Campiglio, Italy

With its pretty village square, glamorous après-ski scene and formidable slopes on the northwestern side of the Brenta Dolomites, Madonna di Campiglio (population 600, elevation 1522m) has a justifiable reputation as one of the Alps’ most desirable resorts. Austrian emperor Franz Joseph and his wife were frequent visitors to Madonna at the end of the 19th century – an era relived in late February when fireworks blaze and costumed pageants waltz through town during the annual Habsburg Carnival.
Less-expensive Pinzolo (population 2000, elevation 800m), 16km south, has a lively centre populated by residents year-round.
