In this three part series we retrace Marco Polo’s legendary journey from Venice to the far reaches of the Mongol Empire, which he started in 1271.
His travels 700 years ago revealed an exotic world of riches the west had little knowledge of. But how does his journey look today?
We travel from Venice to the Holy Land, through the Middle East to the home of the assassins of Alamut in today's Iran.
We travel from the Silk Road to Xanadu while examining Mongolian horses, bronze-age mummies and ancient caravan routes.
The New World
We travel through the heartland of China, from Beijing to the City of Heaven.
