The Floating Piers

Have you ever wished you could walk on water like Jesus?

The international artist Christo has given you the possibility to do exactly that on Lago d’Iseo between June 18th and July 3rd.

It is a magical and overwhelming experience; the movement of the water transmits all its energy to your body through the particular material used to cover these floating piers, therefore you should do this walk without shoes.

The installation starts from the mainland at Sulzano, following the same material of the piers, walk through Monte Isola and end up in Isola di San Paolo; the entire walk is 3 kilometers or 2 miles.

All is orange on Lago d'Iseo these days laugh
