Snowfall in the city of Rome is seriously affecting traffic and public transport, with long tailbacks along the Lungotevere and fewer buses circulating. Crowds are gathered at bus stops in the centre and it is almost impossible to hail a cab.
Regional train services are experiencing long delays but the A and B metro lines, and tram services, are running as normal.
The north of Rome is worst-affected, in particular the areas around Via Cassia, where more than 50cm of snow has fallen.
In the capital, a mixture of rain and snow has led to a thick slush on streets and pavements, leading to dangerous driving and walking conditions.
