Thursday Doors, 20/6/19: Via Giulia, Rome

Yesterday’s tree post reminded me, and some of you, how beautiful Rome is. And it is, in its crazy, eternal, everlasting way. Today some of the doors from Via Giulia.

The occasion was the day of open courtyards in May 2018, on which some of Roman not normally accessible courtyards show themselves to curious passers-by.

I showed you some doors from the start of this day on my previous blog, today some doors and entrances, the last courtyard of the day, and the never-before-seen money door from the end of our 3.5 hour exploration.

All were found on Via Giulia, a long street in the centre of Rome that runs parallel with the Tiber. How fitting, seeing that I had a Giulia with me. ๐Ÿ™‚

For Norm Framptonโ€™s Thursday Doors challenge.

      1. I was trying to reply to your comment about the unavailability of the ‘Language of whistles’ link and that of my blog…but it wouldn’t let me post a reply…I wonder why wordpress does strange things at times! Trying here to see if this works. I had to delete that post as I wasn’t able to paste any New York Times link and I also tried fixing the blog visibility thing…can you see it now? Thank you so very much for bringing these to my notice…had happened before as well:(

      2. Yes, sometimes strange things happen but all can be fixed. If you need more assistance, you can find “Happiness engineers” under Get Help. They will answer any question you have. And yes, I see that you blog is included in your Gravatar too now, well done. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. My second try today – somehow my first comment flew away before I was finished! Can imagine Rome is like other European cities, with a lot of different corners and neighborhoods of a certain building style, once one gets outside the touristic center. You found a lot of beautiful doors!

  2. Grand and interesting arched door is big and beautiful, but the gate won my heart!
    Our office assistant is in Rome – I think for a few more days. She promises to gift me a door photo or two! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. When hunting for doors you can’t go wrong in Rome, that’s for sure.
    The featured door is of course spectacular. Even though I don’t think we spent much, if any time exploring this street, these shots, the streets, the vibe, it all feels familiar to me now. This is the best gift that travel gives us. And yes, Rome has a special aura to it that makes it quite unique.

  4. These are really lovely. I have a couple of doors from Via Giulia. I remember walking along this road (and others) and wishing I could walk through some of those doors. Didn’t know about the open courtyard days. When in Rome the next time ….

    1. Thank you so much, I. J. Well, this was in late May last year, I think it might be an annual weekend event at about the same date. I saw 15 courtyards in 3.5 hours, and I could see just as many if not more the next day. There is a list and the places are clearly indicated. It was fun tracking them down and I’ve seen some real beauties.

  5. doors are indeed fascinating especially as you see different kinds as you travel around. I like also the hand doorknobs and other un-usual & artistic representation of the doorknobs and the door itself. If only doors could talk, they would be good story tellers!

I will not ask you questions at the end of posts to trick you into commenting. So when you do it on your own, it's that more appreciated. Thank you!
