With a cold spell descending on many parts of the country Tuesday, snow fell on Paris on Tuesday morning turning the capital into a winter wonderland and causing a fair amount of transport disruption. Here are some of the best pictures from Parisians.

With much of France on alert for snow and ice Paris was given its first winter dusting of snow on Tuesday morning that left the French capital looking like the City of White.

The Eiffel Tower closed as a result and over 120 bus lines and some trams were halted until further notice.

More snow is expected later Tuesday, with temperatures hovering around zero Celsius (32 Fahrenheit).
Here's a selection of the best photos from the French capital. Please tweet yours to @TheLocalFrance.
Some took to Butte Montmartre for a spot of snowboarding. 

Here's a stunning image of fashion and costume designer Masami performing under the snow, prior to the Chanel Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture collection on Tuesday morning. 

Tourists brave the steps up to Sacre Coeur in the snowy conditions.
