My point is that 65% sunshine should mean more sun at 46'N than at 43'N. Unless they are actually counting less theoretically max sunshine because of the mountains blocking sunlight when the sun is too low, one of the stats is wrong.

As bad as Lugano is the Prince Edward Islands have the worst climate of all IMO.

Lugano by far. I mean, I am a cold lover but I wouldn't bear a whole year of cold and heavy rain (I mean 247 rainy days, rally?). Lugano gets good sun hours (even if a little bit too much for me, 200 hours less would be a perfect number for me), nice precipitations and has acceptable temperatures year round so it gets my vote for sure.

Lugano by a million years, and I haven't even looked at the other stats.

Actually if Bologna could have Lugano's climate that would be terrific. Well, the winters could even be a tad colder and snowier. 125 hours of sunshine in January ? Where do I sign ?

Lugano ! One of the most beautiful climates in Europe. If anyone has any doubts whether Lugano is subtropical or not, just google for pics and check the vegetation.

Actually now that I think about it, Lugano has almost the same temps as Lyon. Jeez, the heat is eating me and I need to go home.

I choose the nice mild climate of Lugano.

Is Atlanta subtropical with a warmer winter than Lugano?

Is vegetation alone the deciding factor on subtropical? Atlanta is quite a bit warmer in winter than Lugano, but most people don't view it as subtropical.
