Volubilis and Moulay Idriss with Roman Picnic
Fes, Fes and northern Morocco, Morocco
Discover Morocco's most important ancient Roman site at Volubilis. After a Roman-style lunch you will head to Moulay Idriss, one of Morocco's most important religious sites, which until recently was closed to non-Muslims.
Step back in time and explore the ruins of Volubilis, a Roman town dating back to the 3rd century BC and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This ancient city has been carefully excavated to reveal original mosaic floors, and impressive Roman architecture, still standing to this day. After wandering among the ancient stones, visit a nearby local farm to taste a selection of Roman dishes, using recipes documented in Latin by Apicius and Cato. Enjoy your delicious meal before heading to Moulay Idriss, the spiritual heart of Morocco. This picturesque town is one of Morocco's main pilgrimage sites and non-Muslims have only recently been allowed to visit, ensuring Moulay Idriss' authentic, traditional way of life has been preserved.
