About
Today a convention and events centre, this was originally a meeting place for the mid-19th century nobility of Central Europe, who had chosen Arco as their winter spa resort. Many notables who visited these gaming rooms and the town. One of the most famous is the Empress Elisabetta, or “Sissi”, who may have been in Arco in 1889 on the occasion of a trip to the southern shores of Lake Garda. The splendid veranda, added in 1900 together with the great ballroom, overlooks the health promenade and the bandstand. The globe and wind column were used to inform guests about the weather conditions.

The local lives here?
Aug 2015 • Friends
We were driving around one day during our Riva del Garda -vacation in the mountains and in small villages and town. Stopped in a small city called Arco which had once been the most popular tourist town in Garda. Had read about this Casino and wanted to stop by but it was closed so had to admire it from outside. Arco is a nice place to visit - clearly when Riva del Garda is mainly for tourists, here lives ordinary italians? Charming small town and easy to access from Riva. When we visited Arco there happened to be huge outdoor market. Besides the prices in restaurants and also e.g. ice cream cafes were almost half of what they were in Riva.

Today a convention and events centre in the middle of charming Arco this was in the mid 19th century a Winter spa resort for the great and the good of Central Europe. Many grandees visited these gaming rooms and Arco itself. Probably the most famous visitor was the Empress Elisabetta or 'Sissi' who stayed here in 1889. Some say that Sissi, who reigned for 44 years, was the Princess Diana of her day, beautiful and charismatic. The splendid veranda and great ballroom were added on in 1900. Other points of interest include the bandstand and the globe and wind column for keeping guests and visitors aware of weather conditions. If planning an itinerary for this area the Casino and Arco itself should feature prominently .
