I thought this situation was so rare that I had to do a climate battle. Both of these climates are at the same latitude (46°) but one is a low altitude tundra climate (ET) and the other is a humid subtropical climate (Cfa) at least according to Koppen. Which do you choose? Curious to see how the cold lovers will vote

It's strange how both are at the same latitudes and yet they have completely different climates - humid subtropical and tundra (though it seems more oceanic).

Lugano has subtropical weather conditions and tropical summer rainfall!
I choose the nice mild climate of Lugano.

Lugano looks oceanic to me. Some oceanic climates here have summer rainfall maximums.

I would choose Lugano
