In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, you can zoom in on the travels of Marco Polo from Italy all the way to China following the Silk Road. Unlike most maps, this map enables you to digitally experience the expedition and zoom in close on each location while you read his eBook. By activating the 3D terrain mode, and using the compass to rotate and see the horizon, you can view the map with mountains that you can zoom in on in order to understand how Polo viewed it and the difficulty of his travels.

Color-coding used in this map:

• The Yellow dots are Books 1 and 2.
• The Green dots are Book 3 (the return trip).

The locations in this map were determined from the following sources:
• The Travels of Marco Polo, by Marco Polo and Rustichello of Pisa and Yule’s input.
