Marco Polo’s “Roof of the World”

China’s Silk Road

I have only told you half of what I saw!” wrote Marco Polo, the famous Venetian explorer, who traveled to China on the Silk Road across the Roof of the World.

The Silk Road was an important path for cultural, commercial, and technological exchange between traders, merchants, and pilgrims from ancient China, Tibet, India, Persia and the Mediterranean for almost 3,000 years.  It gets its name from the lucrative Chinese silk trade, which began during the Han Dynasty.  Today we take a journey along the historical Silk Road.
