This is the house of Marco Polo -almost certainly the most celebrated resident of Venice. He traveled to China and spent many years there, trading and working for the Grand Kahn Although he is the one famous for doing so, he was far from the first. In fact, his father and uncle had gone there before him, and it was they who introduced him to Kublai Kahn. The reason Marco Polo is a name we all know, is because he took the time to set his experiences down in ‘The Travels of Marco Polo’. #marcopolo #empire #venice #venetzia #history #travel #italy #italia #reformation500tour
