As an arctic storm covers much of Europe, Rome found itself covered in snow on Monday.

Mayor Virginia Raggi signed an order on Sunday night closing state schools, while the city’s public transport system was forced to reduce services.

The city’s proximity to the sea and its Mediterranean climate mean snowfall is rare.
