Italy - March 29th, 2012

Snow rests atop the peaks of the Alps, arching across northern Italy and its border with Switzerland, Germany and Austria. South of the mountains lies the valley of the River Po, home to important cities such as Milan (visible as a grey area in the full image), west of Lake Garda. Although the Apennines, the mountain chain that forms the backbone of the peninsula, are snow-free, some snow can be seen at the summit of Mount Etna, in Sicily.
