Here, where the Chiese, Rendena and Outer Giudicarie valleys converge, is a perfect starting point for wonderful trips and excursions into the Adamello, Brenta and Càdria groups (the Ledro Alps).
Whatever the season, Tione and its surroundings delight even the most hard-to-please visitors with a vast selection of environmental, natural and artistic itineraries.
Tione is nestled at the feet of Monte Gaggio, in a basin also known by the name of "Busa". The Sarca and Arnò rivers cross the level plain where the town sits. It is Giudicarie’s main town, as well as its commercial, educational, religious and administrative centre, with the headquarters of the Community of Giudicarie located there.
Tione gained prominence in Giudicarie life only after the court was moved here from Stenico. Later, with the administrative reorganisation and subsequent abolition of the Prince-Bishopric of Trento, its importance grew further as it gradually became the seat of all judicial, political and administrative offices.
The hamlet of Tione developed after the last war, expanding towards the north and spreading outwards from the feet of the mountain to beyond the bypass. Yet the town remains divided up into its ancient quarters: Brevine, Cantes, Ville, Pleù, Sivrè and Basso Arnò.
It has traditionally been a centre of industry (woodworking, shoe forms, foundries, plastic and marble processing, car accessories, the food and construction industries, fish farming), crafts (furniture, workshops, knitwear) and commerce.
