The first flakes have fallen on the mountainous Italy and it’s just gorgeous…

While snow has covered the peaks of the Alps for several weeks, central Italy, where the Apennine Mountains form the country’s backbone, saw its first snow.
And in Tuscany, where many parts of the region woke up under a cover of white, some schools in Siena province were closed on Friday because of the snow.
Snow was predicted to continue in the Central Apennines on Friday, while on either side of the mountains, central Italy was expecting heavy rain, and parts of Campania were on alert for storms.
While snow has so far been mostly confined to higher altitudes, earlier this week parts of the Adriatic coast in Puglia got a few flakes too.
