Narrow Roads in Villages in Italy

Pauline Kenny

On our Fall 2000 trip, we met some web site friends who both live in Citta di Castello, a small town in northern Umbria. This is one of those towns where our driving rule "Never drive in through the city walls" is a good rule. If you drive into the town, it is a system of one way streets and to exit you have to drive down this road.

Look how narrow it is! Steve is standing in the road to show us, but then a car came by for an even better example.

You must drive on this road to get out of the center of town. Remember, most Italian cars have side mirrors that you can pull in, to get through those narrow spaces. But it is best to always park outside the city walls, and walk into the town.
