The gorgeous doors and portals of Verona for Travel Photo Monday

 

Verona is truly a stunning city to walk through and admire all the gorgeous architecture and ornate details of the various periods of the city’s past. Walking around  the main thoroughfares and shopping arcades, you cannot miss the beautiful doors and portals around the city filled with ornate ironwork and potted flowers. I definitely could walk through many of the impressive arcades and plazas.

It’s truly an amazing city to enjoy and see all the wonderful Medieval to Renaissance buildings throughout the city. I found myself looking up all the time to see all these images and here are a few that I enjoyed viewing and then taking a few pictures of.

Don’t you just love the bright and bold colors used on the stucco walls, all the vivid earth tones are used throughout Verona with the brick reds, yellow ochres and shocking orange hues. Mixed in with gorgeous ironwork, architectural details and flowers on the balconies, it’s hard not to resist taking pictures of everything and I did!

The old medieval bridges leading into the wall city have these amazing cut out windows on the walls to showcase some lovely views of the city and river, isn’t this a sweet spot to just take in these wonderful views?

    I love this collection of doors and windows. They really are a great thing to photograph particularly if you are travelling to an old city.

    Doors, portals and windows are always so interesting to photograph, and of course how well you do it Noel. I love the idea of the story behind the door or window, and I think colourful shutters add to the element of intrigue and mystery too.

    I agree that looking through a portal makes a view extra special. I’m always trying to find views like that with my camera. My favourite photos in your post are the three with mustard walls. I can imagine living in the rooms behind the windows and either opening the doors to let the fresh air in or stepping through them to the juliette balconies. I never thought of Verona having a Venetian Influence but it stands to reason because of it’s proximity. I’ve heard nothing but good about Verona and hope to get there one day.

    Love these photos of Veronas’s picturesque entrances and windows. The carvings, colors, ironwork and shutters make each entrance inviting and truly unique. My favorite photo is the burnt orange building with the gorgeous aqua shutters.

    I studied interior design in college so I’m always awed by photos what capture the architectural period details and personality of a destination. Stunning images!

    Truly stunning photos! I love the golden glow to the buildings especially Juliet’s balcony. We’ll be in Verona in May so your post is especially enticing!

    I love when I am traveling and I wake up before sunrise so I can get out for a walk and take photos of doors in the early morning light. Lovely photos!

    I didn’t think you could actually go to Juliet’s balcony?

      Well you can for a price

    It’s always such a pleasure to see the care and devotion given to details in period architecture. There’s a marvelous G+ community devoted entirely to photographs of windows and doors, and I find myself paying more attention to them because of this. The miniature balconies are so romantic, too.

    Fantastic photos; I always love looking at various doorways – don’t know why but they have character

    Beautiful photos–love all the weathered stone and gorgeous golds. Verona really entices!
