Rome Received Its First Snowfall In 6 Years, The Pictures Are Mesmerizing

I’m not sure if it’s just me or if the weather is really bipolar currently. Like one minute I want to go cuddle in the Himalayan cold, the next I want to bask in the glorious Greek sun. But that is all wishful thinking. There is no escaping this hot-and-cold non-sense nature has going on for us.

Thankfully, though, the Romans are quite happy with the weather they’re experiencing. Rome received its first snowfall in 6 years, and boy, are the pictures mesmerizing!

People are sharing breath-taking pictures of the ancient city’s ruins and tourist attractions and it’s seducing my traveller’s soul like never before. Here, take a look for yourself.

18. It’s almost like it’s painted.

For many parts of the world, snowfall is nothing unusual. But this was the first snowfall that Rome received in 6 long years. If it were me, I’d be stoked about it too. Not to forget that the ice blanket makes the ancient city look like its straight outta a fantasy novel, with the glorious Roman structures and the mythological treasure it signifies.

First, the first snowfall in 4 years in Tokyo and now we have the snow Gods blessing Rome. 2018 is really a good year already.
