Marco Polo was the most famous traveller of his time. His voyages began in 1271 with a visit to China, after which he served the Kubilai Khan on numerous diplomatic missions. On his return to the West he was made a prisoner of war and met Rustichello of Pisa, with whom he collaborated on this book. The accounts of his travels provide a fascinating glimpse of the different societies he encountered: their religions, customs, ceremonies and way of life; on the spices and silks of the East; on precious gems, exotic vegetation and wild beasts. He tells the story of the holy shoemaker, the wicked caliph and the three kings, among a great many others, evoking a remote and long-vanished world with colour and immediacy.

Very well set out and easy to read

Very well set out and easy to read, the language is well put and the descriptions of people and places visited are excellent. Well worth a read i only to understand more about the amazing life of people in the past. Distance was calculated by the number of days travelled – it was well before the use of maps, distance and sat navs!

Debated and re-debated constantly. Loved the idea of Prester John. This is an interesting story of racism and prejudiced opinions with the acceptance of different peoples as long as they are a conquoring power. Only the strong survive and the travels have lasted, although their authenticity is constantly questioned

Read this and follow it up with “Invisible cities”. This is one of the world’s great travelogues, all across Eurasia, from Italy to Mongolia.
