Few (none?) of the palazzos in Venice still retain their original doors.

But there are still some really old ones dotted about.

I spotted this one on my way to Santa Maria dei Miracoli, and now I can't identify it (although I thnk it may be part of the Palazzo Soranzo van Axel)

Lots of detailed carving, and some rather elaborate handles. It's rather a lovely door altogether, I think.

In the far south-eastern corner of Cannareggio.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
