Door in Cortona, Tuscany, Italy

Thursday doors

Doors 42

This week I have a rare treat for you…doors from Cortona. I spent last week on a family holiday to Umbria in Italy and this first set of doors is from a day trip we took to this Tuscan town set on a hill top in the province of Arezzo. Close your eyes and imagine the heat, sounds and the smells of this medieval town. Perfect.

  1. All those stairs would have me huffing and puffing but there’s something so charming about those passageways that it’s hard not to explore them whenever possible.
    Italy is a bounty of old architecture and wonderful doors.
    You sure shared some beauties. I hope your time there was well-enjoyed 🙂

  2. Thank you very much for this impromptu trip to Tuscany. I was in Florence in the Summer 1992 and still remember the heat and the need for a cooling gelato. I’m Australian so this was a quick and affordable way to travel back in time. I loved each and every photo and my only disappointment is that I’m not there with you. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
    Best wishes,

      1. Affording Italy is a problem. I only spent about three days there and blew a lot of money. Back then, I was also using Lire which didn’t help managing the spending. It would be fantastic to go back.

      2. Put it on the bucket list. I am beginning to assemble several things I want to do, and achieved one of them not too long ago. Such fulfilment.
