  • Marco Polo's Early Years
  • Marco Polo was born around 1254 into a merchant family in Venice. His father Niccolo and his uncle Maffeo left Polo since they had to go on a trading expedition. Niccolo and Maffeo stayed in Constantinople and Soldaia. Then, they traded silk and gems to others. After that, they were recommended to visit Kublai Khan.
  • Bye Marco! We have to go on a trading expedition.
  • Marco Polo's Travels Along the Silk Road
  • Two years later, Marco Polo, Niccolo, and Maffeo sailed to Acre (Israel). They also followed Kublai Khan's requests to get holy oil, papal documents, and two friars from Pope Gregory X . They traveled across Asia and finally back home.
  • Marco Polo in Venice
  • After returning home, Polo was captured by Venice's archrival Genoa. In prison, he met Rustichello of Pisa (Polo and Rustichello collaborated and made a manuscript). Finally, a Genoese-Venetian peace treaty allowed him to return home and be free. Polo died in January 1324 and he inspired many travelers.
