Nine Knights is hosted by Mottolino Fun Mountain above the Italian town of Livigno in a remote valley close to the Swiss border. Like many Alpine villages, Livigno has escaped from economic hardships due to a booming tourism industry. This valley has the added benefit of being a special tax-free zone, making it a shopping destination as well.
