While on their trip, they visited celebrated libraries, the deserted island of Torcello, the great Palladian homes of the Veneto, and more. The adventure lasted until October 25, 1998. The Grolier Club Iter Veneticum provides an itinerary of the trip with detailed descriptions of their journey. Seventeen contributions by participants are included describing historical information on the collections and buildings visited on the tour, personal photographs, and artwork.
