mmm i can't imagine.. i wish i could get paid for exploring all these old sites. it's a career on its own, and many of these sites especially in libya and dzayer were until very recently hardly accessible to foreigners, tourists, even many archaeologists. now that's changing at last. i think volubilis and sabratha are probably the top two in all of north africa since they're both incredibly extensive sites and rather well-preserved overall.
while we're on the subject, interesting title to check out:
Frontier and Society in Roman North Africa, by David Cherry.

Volubilis (a.k.a. Walili) is a magnificent and magical site. Standing on one of the dunes overlooking the city gives the visitor a sense on how the people who built that edifice were knowledgeable with a sense of practicality and efficiency. The hydraulic systems are complex yet make so much sense (the proverbial Sahl moumtani3). I particularly love the hamams with their mosaic floors and big tubs and can just imagine how comforting they could be.
Good thing the government is paying more attention nowadays to the city and more importantly it seems that its real intellectual potential is being utilized. The Festival of Sacred Music, for instance, held few events in Walili. Just close your eyes there for a second and imagine being surrounded by soothing Sufi and Andalusian chants with the Caracala Arches in the background while the crisp spring evening breeze brushes your face gently carrying the fresh aromas of the walili flower, which is very abundant in the region, hence naming the city Walili. All senses are stimulated just to the right degree.

I've been the impressive Colosseum of El Jem in Tunisia. No words can explain what you feel when you're there, especially in the middle of the colosseum where the beasts would come out from a basement. It is mind-boggling! The village people are very nice as well. In fact, the tunisian trip I had will remain one of the best I've had so far! that's why if given the choice between a trip in Morocco and a trip in Tunisia, Tunisia here I come!!
