Turismo has started to develop a series of touristic routes through the scenes of major productions that have been filmed in Tenerife: it is starting, of course, with the Wrath of the Titans.
There is a detailed click to read brochure HERE accompanied by a google map HERE intended to encourage tourists to see the island through the eyes of Perseus, and discovering the unique experiences Tenerife has to offer, with desert landscapes, subtropical forests, lava fields, beaches, and spectacular cliffs all co-existing side by side. Turismo hopes that this very diversity will attract many more film makers to the island, offering them an environment that could be the backdrop for scenes set anywhere from old Havana to the tropics, and anything in between.
There’s trouble on the buses, or there will be soon, it appears. Titsa has started proceedings to lay off 117 workers and to put around 1,600 more on half time hours … with part time pay, of course. The company is looking to make huge savings in the economic crisis amid funding cuts and says that it will also cut back some urban lines, cutting some out altogether, as well as put prices up around 5% this year.
