Commuters advised to limit travel in Rome area on 26 February.
The army has been drafted in to clear snow from the streets of Rome after the capital woke up to a snowfall of around 10 centimetres on Monday 26 February.
As the snow turns to slush commuters in Rome have been advised to restrict their movements to the "necessary minimum", with public transport also reduced in the capital.
Rome's schools remain closed for the day, as well as the city's parks, cemeteries and numerous museums and archaeological sites, including the Colosseum and Roman Forum.
After a morning of flight delays, the city's two airports are "progressively returning to full operation", according to Aeroporti di Roma, while the snow has led to numerous cancellations and delays for the rail network around Rome.
In the meantime many Romans have descended on the Circus Maximus for snowball fights, tobogganing and even skiing.
