This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

While it is nice to see this tiny little staircase and alley, to hear the history behind the name and grab a photo it won't require much time. Little gift shops adjacent.

It's just an alley in a town of alleys, but the story is cute. Stand beneath the street sign that is 10 feet up on the corner building, and have another tourist take a pic of you beneath the sign as kiss your significant other.

I would suggest you to be here early before the crowds, have in mind that it's a 34 centimeter alley and there are hundreds of tourists trying to take a picture there. The alley is located walking distance from the main plaza. Next time I...More
