Let it snow! Rome and the white masses. Photo of the Week #146

Rome and snow is an intriguing combination. That was the conclusion my sister and I drew last week after being met by closed doors at the Colosseum, the Forum Romanum, the Galleria Borghese and the Pantheon due to “emergenza neve” – they felt that 5 centimeters of snow would make these sites too dangerous for the public. Coming from Denmark we thought it hilarious but ok, this was the greatest snowfall Rome had experienced for 27 years.

In the photo the Spanish steps are being cleared of snow under a bright blue sky that made the whole Rome-in-snow-experience quite a beautiful one.
