The ancient village of Ripatransone
Located less than a half mile from Tutto Doppio, Ripatransone is a small, beautiful village that’s been inhabited since prehistoric times. The name means “rupes (or cliffs) of Transone” probably referring to a feudal land owner at some point. The town was formally unified in 1096, designated a “free commune” in 1205, and officially declared a city in 1571 by order of Pope Pius V.
The old part of the town is walled, and gates to the town still stand. The church dates from the mid 16th century, and this little town has its own opera theater as well as an outdoor amphitheater. And you’ll want to get your picture taken in “The Narrowest Alley in Italy.”
