Volubilis Things to Do: 25 reviews and 64 photos
This site is open daily from 8-darkness. If you arrive by a car there is a guarded parking spot. The cost of admission is 10 dh only. If you do use a guide make sure that they are licensed and legitimate. A guide will cost you 120 dh. If you don't, it is going to be slightly difficult to make sence of the sight. Before you get to volubilis try and see all the pictuers that you can see. That is why I tried to take picture of every thing that I could later label. I did some reading but could not find much Pictures on the net. Kepp an Eye on small size signs, it is your best friend. There is little explanation in Arabic, English and French but they are better than nothing
The book I read was the rough guide and Lonely planet, with the former being slightly better in terms of content and map. If you arrive in the summer bring a hat and water. There is very little shade and the Restaurant is a rip off. with a guide it will take you more than an hour to see the site and another hour to wonder around. Without a guide you can spend 3-4 hrs.
