Open Doors in Florence

LuLa is flitting around in Florence, looking for the Travelocity Gnome.I have heard that there are doors here that are just her size.

These are small porte del vino.
Little doors in the side of buildings in Florence. They were used for after hours wine bars.
A knock, few coins exchanged and your glass would be filled with the local beverage.

Maybe this is where McDonald's came up with the idea of a drive through...


This is my favorite door in Florence. .. the Hotel Burchianti. It is close to the leather markets... just the place to be!Ciao y'all,
Sandi
