The journey of the famous Marco Polo of Venice started in the year 1271 when he accompanied his father and uncle on their voyage to the east. Setting out they went to Jerusalem to get holy water, as requested by the king of China from the elder Polos. Returning by the order of the pope, the Polos set upon the voyage which took them Armenia from there, past mount Ararat (on which is supposed, the ark of Noha rests) to the famous Baku oil fields, following the course of the Tiber and then made their way of Hormus on the Persian gulf. After visiting Hormus they went to Kerman through Khorassan and Badakshan. One leaving Badakshan they went through the Pamirs and Kashgar and then to Turfan on the edge of the Gobi desert. The Polos crossed the Gobi and entered China and into the service of the Kublai Khan. On their return, they set out by the sea hugging the coast of China, crossing the gulf of Tonkin the reached Cambodia.They crossed the straits of Malacca to the Kingdom of Sumatra.

Continuing they passed though Khorasan and journeyed though Persia and Armenia they reached Trebizond on the Black sea, from whence they went by sea back to Venice to where they returned in the year 1295.
