Meet the granddaddy of wanderlust.

Marco Polo was the original traveller. His wanderings established trade between East and West and shaped civilisation as we know it. We’re talking noodles to China, silk to Europe, and Christianity to the world. Walk in his footsteps for an authentic taste of past and present worlds. Be prepared to be amazed at golden cities, vibrant bazaars and big-hearted people.
