Thursday Doors: Across the Arno River

The following photos are my contribution to Thursday Doors, a door-lovers group hosted by Norm Frampton.

For the sixth week in a row, my post features doors from Florence, Italy.

IMG_20200113_135959My family and I found these beautiful arch top doors when wandering through the neighborhoods on the other side of the Arno River from the Duomo Cathedral and the Uffizi Gallery.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope that everyone stays safe and healthy, and that you enjoy a relaxing weekend!

    1. Right? And then I was on the lookout, but didn’t find any more. Evidently, there are others waiting to be found in Florence.

    1. I do too, and Italy are full of them. Well, they have a lot of arched-topped doors here in France too. Thanks, Dan, for stopping by. =)
