Rare Snowfall Blankets Rome

Romans woke up to a rare sight this morning, as Italy's capital was blanketed in snow, due to a cold weather front arriving from Siberia (nicknamed 'Burian'). Rome is known for having a mild winter climate, due to its proximity to the sea, with snowfalls a decidedly unusual occurrence. The last time it snowed was in 2012. Transport disruptions, which are happening this morning in the city, are no fun, but the Eternal City covered in snow is, so here's a slideshow for you to enjoy Roma sotto la neve.
