Marco Polo

Middle school spent the morning with famed explorer, Denis Belliveau, learning all about Marco Polo and retracing his route from Europe to Asia and back. Denis and Francis O'Donnell spent 712 days tracing Marco Polo's journey as recorded in Polo's Book of the Marvels of the World. They were the first individuals to visit and document every region Marco Polo claimed to have traveled using only land and sea methods of transportation.
