Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...southerly valley winds from the Lago di Garda. Arco is a genuine winter health resort. It has a fairly sheltered and sunny winter climate of medium humidity, and may be visited by patients who do not require or ' cannot' visit one of the warmer, more southern, winter resorts. It possesses facilities for hydrotherapy and for inhalation treatment. Dr. M. Kuntze points out that the season can last longer at Arco than at Gardone-Riviera, because at the latter place, owing to its peculiar situation, hot summer weather is earlier felt than at the former. The health resorts on the North Italian lakes are too hot for most invalids during the hottest months of the year, the mean July temperatures reaching 70 to over 74 F.; but they are good spring and autumn resorts, and in many cases may be used as intermediate GRESSONEY-ST.

Gardone-Riviera is a still sunnier place; yet the 435 hours of actual sunshine that, according to Koeniger, Gardone-Riviera can claim during winter (December to February), amount to only 53 per cent of the possible duration, while the 307 hours...show more
