Fodor's Expert Review Museo Doganale

Gandria Free

The thrilling subject of smuggling is brought to life at the Museo Doganale, on the shady southern shore of Lago di Lugano across from Gandria. Known as the "Smuggler's Museum," this place explores the romantic history of clandestine trade between Italy and Switzerland. It bristles with ingenious containers, illicit weapons, and other contraband. You can catch a boat from the jetty in Gandria.
