Who was Marco Polo?

Marco Polo was born around 1254 into a wealthy Venetian merchant family. At the age of 17 he embarked on an epic journey to Asia and was one of the first westerners to visit China. Following his return after 24 years of adventures Marco Polo recorded his extensive travels. The book did much to introduce Europeans to Central Asia and China. Marco Polo’s pioneering journey inspired Columbus and many others.
