According to The Localthis is the first patch of snow to arrive in Rome in six years. The snow – which has also hit the UK, France, Germany and Greece – is a result of very cold air from Russia making its way over to Western Europe, which has led the snowstorm to be dubbed the ‘beast from the east’.

Arguably, the snow left iconic landmarks in Rome such as the Colosseum, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain looking even more breathtaking than usual as they were covered in the white sheet of snow on Monday morning.
