Wandering the Streets of Florence

“Italy is a dream, that keeps returning the rest of your life …” – unknown

Florence or Firenze is, like most Italian cities, filled with churches. I was most impressed by the ‘Gate of Paradise”, the main gate of the Baptistery. It is a 7 foot tall and 3 ton bronze door which depicts scenes from the Old Testament.

Thursday Doors

Cathedral doors with some ornate designs like the Duomo Cathedral or formally known as the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Basilica of Santa Groce.

Some Church doors are just simple wooden doors.

Some wooden doors around the streets of Florence.

Some of the door knockers and one of them looks so scary.

  1. I was fortunate enough to visit Florence in 2013. The entire place is a feast for door lovers isn’t it? And you found some excellent examples of that including the bronze masterpieces on the Duomo.
    I’m shaking my head though wondering how you managed to capture most of these without crowds of people obstructing the view. However you did it: bravo!


    1. Yes Norm, Italy is an amazing place for door lovers, unfortunately I wasn’t into doors yet when we went there in 2016. But I did manage to capture some beauties 👍🏼
      And those streets without tourists are on side alleyways so they seem empty. Thanks for the comment Norm.
      BTW I don’t know why every week your comment goes to spam. I should just remember to look for it every week.
