Thursday Doors in Portofino, Italy

The Voyager has docked in the harbor at Portofino and we tendered into the beautiful sea-side village. I loved everything about Portofino at first glance; the tiny harbor set with cafés, the shape and colors of the buildings and the hot, hot, hot weather……..

Now let’s find some doors!

There were many doors here with no steps to them. Just one step in. I liked the chalkboard next to the door. I wondered if she changes the design or if it is permanent?  You know by now how I am into chalkboards at my cottage.

You can also see the sidewalks are mostly rocks………..

This door was on Saint George’s Church……..perched on the overlook of the cliff…….I wrote a previous post about that………..

This door had really, really steep stairs to get to it………………

And this door was quite attractive……..but, maybe all the pizza signs attracted me to it too.

If you can’t close the door than just provide a glass screen. Isn’t this the cutest place? Checks all the boxes for totally Italian!

This is the entry to the bread shop. Get your bread hot or cold.

Decorative, painted, wrought iron, facade doors were quite popular too……….Love the mailbox on it! There were also items for sale along the walkway.

This doorway looked like a good place to enter, but I didn’t.

And after a day of touring, this is what we came back to. Well, actually we came back to a different restaurant every evening. Fine dining on board the Voyager. Tonight we dine in the Sette Mari restaurant! Yum……….

Have a great door week! Look here to see what others are doing for Norm’s Doors!

It’s easy to do Norm’s Doors. Photograph some doors and post them to Thursday Doors on Thursday!

PS All photos were taken on our IPhones this year……..we are traveling lighter!

PSS I really think that dog in my feature photo would rather be bopping around in that fancy convertible! He never took his eyes off it!

  2. I like interesting doors, doors that announce something special awaiting inside, or make a statement. All these you picture from Portofino really do. So many doors in the States tend to be ho-hum and say nothing, so I say nothing.

    Gorgeous color and contrast! Love the way so much of Italy includes warm and welcoming greens with their exteriors!
