Thursday Doors: Around the Duomo

Last week was one of those weeks.  I’m not sure where it went, and where I was in the process?  Therefore, I sadly missed out on last week’s Thursday Doors, hosted by Norm Frampton over at Thursday Doors.

~~

This week is a continuation of door photos I posted two weeks ago from a recent trip to Florence, Italy.  Like I mentioned in that post, my family and I rose before the sun to stroll around the Duomo without the massive crowds that normally surround the cathedral.  The morning was lovely quiet and peaceful.

The following are a few of the doors we found in the neighborhood while circling the Duomo.  I hope you enjoy!

And, a fruit stand before it opened for business.  I liked the artwork!

More doors from Florence on their way next week.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

    Are you going to do a third of this series of what are probably the most famous doors in the world? (Baptistery)

    1. I’ll do a third “around the Duomo” and include photos my son took of the Baptistery of St. John. I was in awe of the structure and the feel of the place. Thank you for commenting, Trent! =)

    1. Thanks so much, Norm. The first was quite a grand door with lovely ornate carvings. My husband and I simply stood and stared for a significant amoutn of time. At all the doors really – and the amazing structures as well. I love Italy!!
