I had seen a TV special on Volubilis several months prior to my visit and was disappointed with the reality of the site--it needs some work and perhaps a little more respect. There was little in the way of explanation offered, you really do need to bargain for the services of a guide. There appears to be no attempt to keep people at a respectful distance from the more delicate areas, people in hiking boots were tramping the mosaics. Past efforts to restore some of the buildings and mosaics suffered from poor execution, it would have been better to have left them as originally found.
On the other hand, it is an interesting site and if you have never visited Roman ruins, it is well worth a stop on the road to Fes.
