The stuff that dreams are made of. Amazing historically important Roman ruins located near the site where the Jesus of Nazareth movie was filmed about 42 years ago. This is an archeologist's dream site.

We visited Volubilis on our way from Rabat to Chef. The site is a must must see. Scrounge up the 20dh ($2) and visit this site. Give yourself plenty of time to walk around as well, as the site is huge. There's a fairly modern-looking...More

Guide? Site is huge and misdirected in famous travel guide. "Where is the House of Venus?" "Reconstructed in a museum in Casablanca." That saved time. Our guide proved super knowledgeable with a gift to not only entertain but engage the group, Wow what a sight.

We had a fantastic day out at Volubilis. The ruins are breathtaking! There is very little shade available so make sure you go dressed appropriately and take plenty water with you. The visitor centre is interesting and has air-conditioning as a bonus. There is a...More
