The Livigno Alps are a mountain range in the Alps of eastern Switzerland and northern Italy, around the Italian village Livigno. They are considered to be part of the Central Eastern Alps.

The Livigno Alps are separated from the Bernina Range in the south-west by the Bernina Pass; from the Albula Alps in the north-west by the Upper Engadin valley; from the Sesvenna Range in the north-east by the Ofen Pass and Val Müstair; from the Ortler Alps in the east by the upper Adda River valley (Valtellina) and the Stelvio Pass.

The Livigno Alps are drained by the rivers Adda River, Inn and Rom (tributary of the Adige).
