The province of Lecce in southern Italy is known as the ‘heel’ of Italy’s ‘boot’. Torre Lapillo, located in Lecce, has pristine beaches, and in summer, temperatures can reach as high as 40°C. However, this winter has seen Torre Lapillo experiencing the other side of the temperature spectrum, and with snowfall sweeping across most of Italy, the paradise has been turned into a winter wonderland.

Loútsa, Greece

Loútsa is located roughly 4.5 hours outside of Athens by car and, much like the rest of Greece, it is known for its warm, blue waters. This picturesque beach has also been received its share of the snow that is sweeping across Europe, an extremely rare thing.

Porto Cesareo, Italy

Porto Cesareo is a town in Italy also located in Lecce. It has been named the ‘Maldives of Europe’ for its crystal clear shallow waters, lengthy white-sand beaches and warm weather. The recent snowfall is a rare occurrence for this area, making the snow an extra special sight.
