Anyone dreamed of walking on water? This is the opportunity! Visit Lake Iseo, located in northern Italy and you can easy notice this major installation – “The Floating Piers“. Artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude designed a floating walkway in Italy.
This 3km (almost 2 miles) floating walkway across Italy’s lake Iseo is made of 200,000 high-density polyethylene cubes and is covered in 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric, which changes colors throughout the day to a shimmering gold and a reddish hue when wet.
Here visitors are able to walk from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the island of San Paolo, which it encircles.
“They will feel the movement of the water under foot,” Christo said. “It will be very sexy, a bit like walking on a water bed.” Christo also said: “There are no tickets, no openings, no reservations and no owners”! So everyone can visit and experience “The Floating Piers”!
