Great Quiz! Just a couple of suggestions

1.Istanbul is too far south, it should be on the strait of Bosphorus.

2. Add Samarkand to this map, as it is a vital city on the road and is well known due to Marco Polo

Otherwise, really Nice! I love the gradient on the map!

I loved this quiz! Good job, but I would change "Cochin" to "Kochi" (the former is the anglicized name, the latter is the local spelling and the present-day official name). You could have the primary answer as "Kochi" and "Cochin" could be an alternate answer. :)
