MOVING TO THE FLOATING PIERS

BRESCIA MOBILITA’

The integrated transport system to reach the Christo’s work of art from Iseo

The Municipality of Iseo, in collaboration with the Municipality of Brescia and Brescia Mobilità Group has created an integrated transportation system that can meet the different needs of visitors by offering the ability to use multiple solutions: about 1,500 new parking spaces at Iseo complemented by a shuttle service from Iseo to Sulzano, from Brescia to Sulzano and a tourist train at Sulzano.

8 new parking lots will be available at Iseo for a total of about 1,500 parking spaces, which will be open 24/24 from June 18th to July 3rd.
At the car park it will also be possible to buy tickets for the shuttle from Iseo to Sulzano that will pass right through the car park and will arrive at the pick up/ drop off point in Sulzano’s square.

Iseo and Sulzano will be connected for 16 days by an active system of shuttles 24 hours a day: the bus will run a round-trip service between the two municipalities for access both day and night to ensure access to the Christo’s work from Iseo.

For easy access to The Floating Piers users will also be able to use the shuttle service that connects Brescia and Sulzano with an immediate return to Iseo: every day from 9.00 to 19.00, leaving every hour, from Largo Torrelunga in Brescia heading towards Iseo, coinciding with the dedicated shuttle that will also take visitors to Sulzano.

Brescia Mobilità Group offers organised groups a personalised transport service using Gran Turismo buses with the possibility to structure the service based on the customers’ needs. For information about the service and any particular requests: comunicazione@bresciamobilita.it – Tel. +39 030 3061018

Organised groups who want to spend a day in total relaxation by visiting The Floating Piers but also the wonderful area that houses the floating bridge system will be offered the chance to buy all-inclusive packages that will allow access to: the exhibition “Christo and Jeanne – Claude Water Projects “, the Museum of Santa Giulia, the bus trip from Brescia to the surrounding areas, Sulzano for visiting the Floating Piers and a lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants in Franciacorta with local dishes.

The Pier structure, which moves following the rhythm of the waves, offers a unique experience and sensation of “walking on water” and it is therefore recommended the use of comfortable footwear.

The route, which will lead the pier, will begin in two main assembly squares where a yellow carpet has been rolled along the streets of the historic centre for the “ lido di Sulzano”  to the end of  “via Cadorna”.

The Pier is also suitable for wheelchair users and children prams.

A 600 strong team will ensure safety and protection of all visitors with electronic monitoring of the Pier structure and guarding the flow of people 24 hours a day.
