Ancient Roman Ruins in Northern Africa – Volubilis, Morocco

We thought about skipping Volubilis as we have been to Pompeii and Ephesus this trip, but lucky for us we made the right choice.  Volubilis is an ancient Roman city in Northern Africa.  While the Romans left it in the 3rd century and earthquake destroyed much of it in later years, the ruins of Volubilis are amazing.

Here are some of my favorite shots of our visit, and for a change the family is in almost all of them:
