The North African country of Tunisia has played a starring role in blockbuster movies for decades, and the places where famous films are set are now getting another moment in the spotlight as the country prepares to unveil a new cinematic route around various filming locations.
The route, stretching from Tunis to Tataouine, is currently being developed and is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. It will cover more than 15 sites across 10 regions and will highlight films including Star Wars, Monty Python: The Life of Brian, Indiana Jones, and The English Patient. Some local tour operators already offer trips to the Star Wars film sets that were abandoned in the deserts of southern Tunisia, but this route promises to bring them a new level of recognition.
