Have you ever been impressed by the beauty of a door? The world is filled with doorways* and entrances, but here are several that left me either pleased by their quaintness, awed by their workmanship, or entranced by their immensity and grandeur. All before ever setting one foot inside.

Hard to top the view of Lake Maggiore from our patio doors in Stresa:

In Paris, the entrance to the Notre Dame Cathedral is imposing…
…and so elaborately adorned.
How about this golden carved door in Florence?
Gotta love the Renaissance.
I saved my personal favourite, also in Florence, for last.
