Doors and portals of Verona

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!
