  • Acropolis Blanketed in White as Athens Witnesses Rare Snowfall

    Greece, a country of spectacular beaches and beautiful island vacation destinations, experienced a rare winter storm that caused snow to fall over Athens' historical and governmental sites on Tuesday, including the famed Greek Acropolis, a citadel of ancient Greek temples located on a hillock overlooking all of Athens. The Greek capital continues to be gripped by a rare cold snap that has blanketed many of Europe's capitals in snow. In Athens, guards had to be assisted across the icy square in front of the Hellenic Parliament, while children made the most of the situation and played in the snow. The snowfall inspired a flurry of activity on Greek social media, with many users posting joyful pictures on Instagram and Facebook. Freezing temperatures affected most of the country, leading to ferries being unable to operate and the closure of schools due to the heavy snowfall. Several households were left without access to water, after pipes froze during the drop in temperature.

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
