Vieste: the Ferris wheel arrives

Vieste, one of the pearls of the Gargano in Puglia, is preparing to experience a fun-filled summer of 2024. The municipal council has announced with a resolution a project which will see the installation of a 32 meter high Ferris wheel, from 7 May to 7 September, destined to become one of the symbols of the Vieste summer.

This bold project was proposed by Jorge Lorenzo Guerrero, an illustrious former motorcycling rider and MotoGP world champion. The decision to accept this proposal confirms Vieste's desire to renew itself and offer its visitors unique and unforgettable experiences.

The Ferris wheel will find its home at the head of the breakwater of the tourist port, an area strategically chosen for its proximity to the quay intended for docking motor ships to the Tremiti Islands. This position not only guarantees a breathtaking view of the Adriatic Sea but makes the Ferris wheel easily accessible to both tourists and residents.

From the newspapers we learn that the inauguration of the Ferris wheel is scheduled for next June, with Jorge Lorenzo Guerrero attending the ceremony, marking the official start of the summer tourist season in Vieste. In addition to giving his prestigious support to the inaugural event, Lorenzo will use his social channels to promote the Ferris wheel and the other events that will liven up Vieste during the summer.

With this new addition, Vieste is confirmed as a right destination for those seeking natural beauty, history, culture and fun for everyone.

Here is the original rendering attached to the project and the characteristics indicated:

The Ferris wheel proposed for Vieste has the following characteristics:

Height of 32 meters.

A dedicated vehicle for social integration, reserved for disabled people who will be able to use the attraction free of charge.
