Volubilis is surely one of the most in-tact Roman ruins I’ve seen so far. You can clearly see where the homes were, where the basilica was and where the gates were. The mosaics are also still very complete. When you arrive at the site it...More

A tour of Volubilis can be done from either Meknes (25km) or Fes (35km), as it is between the two cities. Only a small part of the 42ha site has been excavated, but the building walls, mosaics and reconstructed arches are high quality. This capital...More

The ruins at Volubilis are stunning and if you’re into history arrange for a guide. It’s worth the visit but only if you’re into ruins and history. The museum is small and quaint and the ruins are decently in tact and comparable to Delphi or...More

Southern border city and agricultural centre of the Roman Empire in Mauretania, some arches has been partially restored & beautiful mosaic floors have been uncovered. Historical displays and maps in the visitor centre. No shortage of willing guides.

It's only about 25% excavated and the 1755 Lisbon earthquake damaged it but there is still plenty to marvel at - a town of 20,000 people populated a couple of thousand years ago. It was raining when we visited but our guide kept going and...More

We took a taxi to get there. It is very interesting place with many original Roman futures,mosaic and remains of the town structure. Put sufficient time to see it all and be prepared for a good walking of couple of hours.

I read some of the terrible comments and agree that if you don't have a guide it might be quite a lacking experience. My agency arranged a local guide for us and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, telling us about how it looked like in...More
