    Moulay Idriss seen from Volubilis

    Many people combine a trip Moulay Idriss with a visit to the Roman ruins at Volubilis, 4km to the north west. Volubilis was one of the most remote outposts of the Roman Empire and the ruins here are amongst the best preserved and definitely the best known Roman ruins in Morocco. It costs 10 Dh per person to visit the ruins though hiring a guide costs extra. The ruins are spread out over a large area so you’ll need about 2 hours to see everything. There are a couple of cafes and a hotel near the ruins though it’s a better idea to bring a picnic or have lunch in Moulay Idriss. Don't miss the fantastic views of Moulay Idriss from Volubilis. With the Roma Ruins in the foreground, it allows for nice pictures.

    View of the Camel

    If you are travelling to Moualy Idriss from Meknes you’ll see the town from the road long before you reach it. The town, from a distance, is often said to resemble a camel with the two districts of Khiber and Tasga resembling the humps and the zaouia and shrine representing a saddle. Whether it’s like a camel or not, the white buildings of the town certainly stand out against the green landscape.
