Snow in Rome – Roma Sotto La Neve

I’m not much of a winter person. That’s one reason I like Rome so much. It rarely snows here. The last time was in 2012 – six years ago.

Despite that, I have always wanted to see Rome with a dusting of snow.

This morning, I got my wish and then some. The snow started falling in the middle of the night. By 5am the city was eerily silent, the snow buffering the few sounds of morning.

So I set out and took some photos.

  1. When I think of Roma, the sights of snow blanketing the city never pop into my head! 🙂 There is nothing sadder than seeing palm trees covered in snow. What’s next? Ice skating in Trevi Fountain!

    There is a weird kind of beauty to the photographs you posted. It’s like looking out my front window on typical February day…minus the awesome Roma colosseo views. Thanks for the post.
