The Doors of Rome

I love finding unique and beautiful doors wherever I go. Every door tells a story and in Italy, there are a tad too many stories! The doors in Italy are not only gorgeous but also fascinating in many ways. But the doors in Rome, tell a whole other story. They are simply marvelous!!


All the doors that I’ve spotted and walked past in Rome are very pretty and unusual. For some reason, the green ones catch my fancy more than others. For instance, look at this bright green door with the ivy on the side…..! Effortlessly Roman!


One from Trastevere

And what do you think of this light grey door?? Doesn’t it tell you a little about the owner….Maybe in their 50s??

And this tiny green door?


Don’t miss that pot on the top!

Notice the door handle on this one below!


One of the most photographed!

And what about these two?? They might be on the same street but their owners are different. The one on the left looks forlorn and unattended while the other is twice as fresh and adds vibrancy to the other.


Next door neighbors.

Then there’s this green…..Too bright for some??


A bit too bright? I don’t mind!



A green that I love

Light and shadow here.


That Roman light!



I want those plants!

Look at this half hidden wall with the letter box along with the sleek brown door on the right!

The Italian style simply blows my mind!


Look at this gorgeous door!!

Which city have you found the prettiest doors in??

Meanwhile, I’m rummaging through my years of Italy photos to do another door post for you all!

    Beautiful. I always take photos of the doors of Italy. Flowers and bicycles seem to accompany many making them even more attractive. Love your blog.

    I love interesting doors and always take pictures of them. Spain has some amazing doors as well. But the best place for great and unusual doors is Malta, with the most interesting doorknockers. I love the ones you captured in Rome.

    I agree with you about doors. I have collected hundreds of pictures of doors during my travels. I tend towards the more run-down neglected doors. I have published posts of doors from a number of cities including this one from Egypt.

    I started collecting photos of doors In Ottawa Canada, but have also a lot from China and found some lovely ones in Brazil, but old England was probably the best source of interesting doors. But, Lece Italy had a wonderful selection of interesting doors.

    What a beautiful selection, Ishita! Such a good representation of Roman doors. Indeed, Rome might have the best doors of all the places I’ve been to, even though in Italy doors are similar and gorgeous everywhere. (Siena comes to mind.) I’m also drawn to green doors the most, I’d say, and yet I can’t say that I remember taking a photo of any in your post. There are just too many in Rome to have all accounted for. 🙂 To new door discoveries!

    Very nice. I don’t know if I have a favorite door city. I’ll have to give it some thought. They all have so much personality.
