Tires, a small town positioned at a height of between 1000 and 1200 m a.s.l., 25 km east of Bolzano. This little town, with its wonderful scenery, represents one of the most loved objectives for photographers. The places of historical significance can be found along a historical footpath which can be walked in about three hours. The town of Tires became famous in the last decades of the last century; the Dolomites having been discovered as an Eldorado for climbers a few years earlier. The Catinaccio region steadily attracted more and more mountain lovers, and Tires represented the best starting point for getting to know these still unexplored areas. These charming locations have been seducing all those in search of a little rest, and lovers of nature and of the mountains for over 100 years. And yet, when compared with the other Dolomite valleys, this little town seems to have escaped the changes of time.
Its homogeneous layout helps to blend it in with the fascinating mountain environment. There is no ski-lift to disfigure the landscape, and no cableway transporting hoards of tourists up the mountains. The ideal place, in short, for all those looking for a little peace and for direct contact with nature. Tires can be reached from the Isarco valley using an easy panoramic road which passes by Aica di FiŤ. This road continues for San Cipriano, then to the Nigra Pass until reaching the Costalunga Pass where it joins the Grande Strada delle Dolomiti (the Great Road of the Dolomites). This route also passes by the skiing region of Carezza, which can be reached in 15 minutes from Tires by car or by bus.
