Winter in Rome from the Janiculum

After waking up once again to falling snow I headed up to the top of the Janiculum Hill, or Gionicolo, to take photos of the rare blanket of snow over the city of Rome. Having been up the hill during nice weather, it was an interesting contrast to now find the dome of the Pantheon and the city landscape draped in white. Even the walk between my apartment and the hilltop park was an adventure. The Italians, having very little preparation for such weather, have been walking around with their cameras snapping photos like tourists new to the city. Today was a nice break because, for the first time in Rome, I got a chance to feel like the experienced local.
