River Tiber at dangerously high levels

River Tiber, Castel Sant'Angelo and Ponte Sant'Angelo
1 February, 2014
Days of incessant rain have brought floods north of Rome and the swollen River Tiber has risen to dramatically high levels in the city. When the rain briefly turned to drizzle yesterday afternoon I took a stroll to Castel Sant'Angelo where the Tevere had almost reached the arches of Ponte Sant'Angelo. Later that evening the Tiber rose to almost 13 metres at high tide.

I shot this video from Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II bridge. Watch below or click here to watch on YouTube.

I'm so glad I found this blog. We were in Italy in April 2013 and I just loved Rome!! I loved everywhere we went actually. I live in Australia were we don't usually see that much water, but when we get flooded it is very frightening. I hope there was not too much damage.
Cheers, Anita.
