16511725
a seventeenth-century Italian adventurer and traveler. He was among the first Europeans to tour the world by securing passage on ships involved in the carrying trade; his travels, undertaken for pleasure rather than profit, may have inspired Around the World in Eighty Days. This five-year trip would lead to his best known six-volume book, Giro Del Mondo (1699). Some suspected him of spying for the Vatican on his journey.
