This is a fun outing from Lugano. Take the local train and stroll a few blocks to the factory and store. We bought lots of chocolate to bring back to our friends and family. Samples are available so you know what you are buying.

Lovely chocolate and chocolate shop where you can actually taste chocolate before buying it, for free! The museum is nice, nothing special but nice, specially if you go during working hours, when the factory is working, so to smell the chocolate goodness! Worth a visit...More

This is a very small museum and you can see a very small part of the factory. Don't expect something big, but worth checking out if you are nearby. We always take away chocolate from here, it's delecious.
