(Marco Polo’s real story)
Marco Polo’s book inspired Christopher Columbus on his journey to the Americas. But his life and history are not as well-known as it should be… until now.
Marco Polo was an Italian merchant, writer and explorer known thanks to his books where he reveals to the Europeans the wealth and the real size of China.
In this book you will get know the real history of Marco Polo in the two crucial moments of his life. On the one hand, the time during his trip, the stay at the court of Kublai Khan and his return. And on the other, the first days of the luxurious imprisonment in the castle of San Angelo after being defeated in the battle of Curzola (1298), while he still didn’t know very well where he was, being prisoner both of the Genoese and of his own memory.
