Lugano must be Italian for expensive – luxury niche boutiques abound, some selling stainless steel watches in excess of 15,000 Swiss francs as well as other merchandise for the very rich or those who like to max out their credit cards. Plenty of Swiss chocolate as you would expect too – and you can pay for your purchase in Swiss Francs or Euros.
