Winter has definitely arrived in Italy, and the frigid temperatures and yes, even nevicata, snowfall, has reached the mezzogiorno, as far south as Sicily, even at low altitudes, along the coast. The Amalfi Coast had snow and Lecce and other towns in the Salento of Puglia were snow covered.

Enjoy these photos posted on Instagram, and other social media venues, of the snow in Italy.

Any thoughts? I’d love to hear your feedback, so please leave a comment, and if you have snow pics from Italy, feel free to share the link.

Grazie and Ciao.

I loved seeing these photos of snow from all parts of Italy. Check out my Instagram page for more photos from Italia like this one from Positano.

    The snow fotos are so pretty. I hope my roof in Orsara di Puglia doesn’t cave in from the weight of all the snow though! Here in Vancouver we have had snow since December 5th….and we hardly ever get snow! It was fun fireproof a few days, but basta! I can’t wait till it’s all gone ☃️. Ciao, Cristina

    I love your photos but cannot believe the snow in Sicily. So much for leaving Florida to move there.

    I would have loved to share photos with snow, but I’m in Northern Italy and there’s not even the phantom of snow here 😂 The world has truly turned upside down xD

        This actually happens when the bad weather comes from North: Alps protect us and it sort of avoid us to travel south. Now the weather front is coming from west (France), so it is probably going to hit us.

    Thank you for these photos Margie. We were just in many of these places. They are beautiful and enlightening. Ginny

    Great idea for a post! Incredible to see the snow on the beach. And Alberobello, have you ever been there, Margie? It’s magical without snow, I’m guessing it’s really like a fairy tale in the snow! Hope your new year is off to a wonderful start.

    Growing up in Milwaukee, I grew tired of long, cold, white and gray winters…it’s why I moved to Phoenix. Yet somehow, even snow and winter looks beautiful and quite tolerable in the bel paese. Great photos, thanks for compiling them and the post!

    I wish I was in Italy right now to see some of these places covered with snow! I will be back in 6 weeks, I hope I get some snow.

    I enjoy the pictures because they are beautiful but I will pray for the poor folks who have to tolerate S N O W (which means it is freezing cold)! May it warm up soon.

    Unbelievable. Having been in many of those places, it is amazing to see snow on areas that were so hot when I visited them. Thank you, Margie, for the fantastic photo show.
