Italy saw ferries and flights cancelled and schools in the south are expected to close on Monday.
Turkey has also been badly affected. The Bosphorus was closed to shipping as a heavy snowstorm hit Istanbul. 
At least 10 people died of cold in Poland. Night temperatures in Russia plunged to minus 30C.

Normally milder Greece has witnessed temperatures of minus 15C in the north where an Afghan migrant died of cold last week and roads were closed.
In Athens, the temperature failed to rise above 0C and several of the islands were covered in snow. 
Some of the Greek islands are home to thousands of migrants and many are being moved to temporary housing and heated tents.
