The life and travels of Marco Polo

A portrait of the traveller as told by the Venetian historian who wrote his biography.

If Dante Alighieri did in fact come to Venice in 1322, he would have had the chance to meet Marco Polo, who was still alive 
and well in his house in the San Giovanni Crisostomo neighbourhood, which the family bought with his earnings from his long 
trip to the East. Though the meeting almost certainly never happened, the possibility, however imaginary, is very alluring.
