Thursday Doors, July 6: A tale of two Italian towns

My last two hill towns of Italy left me with a sense that surely nothing could surpass them (though, my friend Manja tells me that’s just not so – I’ll have to believe her, for now 🙂 … )

Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio, the last of my Italy destinations, dished out a lovely assortment of doors (and more).

For Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge

  1. Beautiful shots of wonderful doors, but I think that first shot might be my favorite. 🙂

  3. So good to see Bestia on another blog! He surely goes around! 😉 Lovely glimpses from our second day together. And I do promise – there are even more spectacular scenes to be had. Pitigliano comes to mind… I’m sure you’ll be back and you’ll see for yourself. Many great images but the cat I love so much. ❤

  4. Thanks Manja! Italy will never be the same after I come back and we take on the small towns together. Heh. Yes, I love the cat! I have another just as charming from our day in bagnoregio, but no door. Will save for another post!

    So many gorgeous shots in this collection it’s hard to pick a favorite. That shot looking out onto the footbridge is wonderful. This is an area I’d love to check out for myself, but not in 90 degree heat 😀
    Great post.

    1. Thanks Norm! It was indeed VERY hot. But as you can imagine, we forged ahead; the beauty of it really helped soothe the heat! And yes, very much worth a visit. Or two 🙂

    Love the details of the half door you’re showing. This makes me want to go back to Italy, sigh:)

    1. I’ve come to the conclusion that anyone who’s been to Italy before always yearns to go back, and, they always ends that sentiment with a “sigh”.

    Swoon. Seriously. Especially Chiesa di San Donato, one of the most gorgeous door (double door?) shots I’ve seen. Magnifico.
