Northern Italy's Lake Iseo has been transformed thanks to a series of floating piers  that cover 100,000 square metres. The result is magical, but it's only around for a few more days. So, to put it bluntly: you only have until July 3rd to walk on water in this stunning location. The concept was first conceived in 1970 by Christo and Jeanne-Claude, who wanted those who use the floating piers to "feel like they are walking on water – or perhaps the back of a whale". Christo adds , "The light and water will transform the bright yellow fabric to shades of red and gold throughout the sixteen days.” The piers are made from a shimmering yellow fabric suspended just above the surface of the water with the help of a modular floating dock system constructed of thousands of high-density polyethylene cubes. The walkway is 3km long, and continues for another 2.5 km through pedestrian streets in the cities of Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio. The piers are free and accessible to everyone (weather permitting), so travelers and pedestrians alike can enjoy beautiful summer views of the lake and surrounding mountains at any time of day. Forget the red carpet, we'll take a golden walkway on water any day.
