Around the World in 80 Days is Jules Verne’s classic tale of action, adventure, comedy and drama. Phileas Fogg bets that he can travel around the world in 80 days, and sets off that very night accompanied by his French servant Passepartout. As they travel, they interact with the people they meet along the way, accumulate additional traveling companions, and have dramatic adventures. The story includes ships and trains, snakes and an elephant, disguises, duels and deceptions!
