I feel as if I've just watched an episode of "House Hunters International". Lovely shots.

Some of those really are sepia doorways . What history they must have seen

Oh! Such doorways and entrances! Love the barbershop...and the bricked streets & passages. Very, very nice post!

The street in the photo of the barbershop doorway reminds me of the barbershop my husband frequents on a little narrow one-way side street in the old 'downtown' area of Sonora. Beautiful doorways, all, by the way. A very nice post.

Fantastic collection of doors. If only they could talk.

These are terrific photos! On my few visits to Italy I too was impressed by the variety of doors. They had an individual character that we don't see in America. The medieval door is fantastic.

All so beautiful and enticing!

Those old European buildings with their thick walls have wonderful doorways, so mysterious and enticing!

So many of those doors remind me of doors in Italy. Any of them would make great post cards or an artsy wall grouping.

all are superb photos, but the one with the wine casks awaiting delivery caught my attention the most.

Exciting each and every single one, and for the most part I'd be happy to walk through almost everyone of them!
