Eternal City In White: 12 of February, 2010

Rome, Italy

Do you believe in miracles? Would you like to start believing? Probably the first time after many years, the eternal city - Rome received a gift from the nature - snow. On the 12th of February, 2010 the morning in Rome started in a very different way. Confusion among the people, drivers and workers aroused as unexpected snowflakes began to cover all the ancient city. The city was last dusted with snow only in 2005. However, the last significant accumulation was in February 1986, when snow literally paralyzed the city.

Visitors and tourists of Rome could enjoy a very rare look of the snow-covered Roman monuments, squares and buildings. Unique views in a classic city. According to Italian forecasters, the reason for the snowfalls in Rome is the arctic cyclone that hit the south of Italy. The tricks of the nature definitely caused some troubles in a busy city. Train delays and flights in and out of Rome's second airport, Ciampino, were temporarily suspended due to poor visibility.

Naturally, the snowfall was heavier outside the city and even the seaside of Rome - Ostia, received some of the snowflakes. Living in a fairytale, watching the snow falling down - all of that was happening in Rome! Who nows when the eternal city will great the snow for the next time. If you had been visiting Rome on the 12th of February, you were lucky to see and experience all that!
