Roman Ruins of Volubilis
Volubilis was founded in the 3rd century BC by Carthagenian traders. It was annexed to the Roman Empire about 40 AD and became an important outpost on the trade route to Mauritania. The site boasts incredible mosaics; it is very atmospheric in its isolation amidst olive groves and offers wide ranging views of the surrounding countryside.
To get there we took a grand taxi from Meknes to Moulay Idriss and asked the taxi driver to drop us off at the roundabout below the village. We walked the rest of the way to the ruins, a great introduction to the visit. To do so, continue for 300 to 400 meters along the N13 and take the first road on the left, a quiet side road (P7006) leading to the ruins amidst fields of olive trees in about 45 minutes.
