This UNESCO World Heritage Site city contains some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the country of Morocco. Volubilis is located between the modern cities of Fez and Meknes and was founded in the 3rd century BC during a time when the city was part of ancient Mauretania, of which it was the capital. The city then became an important outpost of the Roman Empire and was graced with several interesting and beautiful buildings. Located near the holy city of Moulay Idriss, this city is full of history and is a must see for visitors to this incredible country.
