Sometimes though it can get a bit boring looking at someone's holiday snaps and so I thought I'd post them a little differently. Each post will have a theme.
For example this post shows a collection of doorways that caught my eye as we toured around the glorious Amalfi coast, towns and villages.
Welcome to the Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, "considered one of the most important examples of the landscape, botany and culture of England created in the Mediterranean area between the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries." (quoted from souvenir brochure)
The architecture of these beautiful buildings is staggering, sometimes so simple it takes your breath away.
Others are so ornate they make the breath catch in your throat.
This building houses the Operatic Society in Sorrento.
In towns such as Amalfi the shop owners fill their doorways and the pavements beyond
with wonderful goods for sale.
The torre d'ingresso, Villa Rufolo, Ravello.
The area around this doorway below entranced Richard Wagner to such an extent that he exclaimed that he had found the magical garden of Klingsor
for it was the tangible expression of his most fantastic vision.
In my next post, some of the quirkier things that we spotted on our travels.
