The title of Italy's narrowest alley goes to a vicolo in Ripatransone. Following the signs from the main piazza I was convinced that the second alleyway was the narrowest one. But it couldn't have been as I could walk down it normally.

The narrowest alley is only 43 cm wide which means that someone with shoulders has to go down it sideways. I was concerned I might get stuck, but having reached the bottom without the need for vats of olive oil and butter to ease me free we spent a few minutes taking fun pictures of me having to be levered out!

The town itself is a pretty example of a medieval Marche town and it is has wonderful views down to the Adriatic Sea. There are also a few other sites to visit as well.

It’s just a couple of small alleys but they’re super sweet, surrounded by picturesque buildings, in this adorable hilltop town. It’s fun to be able to say, “we’ve seen the smallest alley in Italy!”

That's basically all there is to say. The town of Ripatransone is worth a visit though. Beautiful medieval streets and a good portion of the old city walls are still virtually untouched.

there are places to visit, but make this a MUST SEE when you are touring Italy! the streets ARE narrow! You might need to fold in your side mirrors if you brave to drive. Take time for a coffee and enjoy the view from atop this fabulous city.

This is a small town that has alot of history to it. Not very touristy and thats what makes it worth the trip! the people are welcoming and friendly even if you don't speak Italian. We had people go out of their way to say hello and try to talk with us--even though I do not speak any Italian we still seemed to communicate effectively and always departed conversations with a smile and handshake or wave! The restaurants here are fantastic!
Go for the people and town--dont forget to spend a minute in the alley:-)

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;)

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