Named after the famous Venetian explorer, Marco Polo Travel Publishing launched its new series of travel guides in March 2012, starting with 30 titles. Their research uncovered that, while there are a number of travel guides on the market, many travellers found them either too text-heavy or overly general and lacking in insider tips. Marco Polo guides are designed to overcome these problems. The experienced team has many years of expertise in successfully producing and selling cartographic products and travel guides. Marco Polo offers an extensive range of high-quality publications, including travel guides, traditional maps, laminated city and holiday maps, road atlases and the world-famous Baedeker guides.
