Worth the trip to squeeze into the narrowest street in Italy. Set in a gorgeous hill top hamlet with incredible views over stunning scenery.

Ok - what to say, it is a very narrow path between two houses in the very lovely historic town of Ripatransone. The town is well worth a visit , the narrow alley won't take you long to explore;)

Interesting village in Italy. Ripatransone is a quite place to visit, very characteristic. Interesting is the fact that here there is the narrowest alley in Italy. Worth it!

Ripatransone is a very cute little town on a hill of app. 475m high; there are a lot of small/narrow streets in this village. The narrowest alley is special/funny espiacelly for the kids

Actually the alley is very well sign posted. The small walkways and streets are charming themselves. The town offers plenty of restaurants, cafes, accommodation and just enough attraction to make it an evenings stopover or a few hours side trip.

Makes a good picture, but overall, it's just two buildings built very close to each other with a path/steps in between.

Although clearly marked by signage on the walls of the town, this alley is a bit of a search to find, as the signs point in the correct direction but don't guide you step-by-step as some Americans expect. You have to do some searching on your own. Just remember that if you can walk down the alley without turning sideways,... More

Very interesting and unspoilt village with two distinct squares; untouched corners tucked away, with plenty of scope to explore. The views from the walls outside the town are amongst the most spectacular in Italy

I liked it very much and the kids had so much fun. My sun even got his children's bycicle through it!
