Marco Polo. Travel on the Silk Road
A new look at the exceptional life of the great Venetian traveller!
The Book of Wonders, which relates Marco Polo's journey to the East, is one of the great texts of the Middle Ages. This story is the first to reveal to the West the immense expanse of Asia. By providing information on Persia, Central Asia, China and an important part of the Far East at the end of the 13th century, this book continues to fascinate ethnologists, historians, explorers and, more generally, all those who are interested in discovering the world.
