If you only have one day in Marrakech, you can't miss the souks and the Djemaa el-Fna. It’s easy to get lost in the mazelike alleyways so consider hiring a guide who will make the mayhem manageable. You might still wind up in his uncle's lantern shop, but it's worth it and should also give you time to see the Koutoubia Mosque and the Ali Ben Youssef Medersa (the former college features breathtaking architecture). The other option is to go it alone and lose yourself in the streets of the old town, as visitors have for a thousand years, soaking in all the colors and craziness.
