The trip took them first to Paris, then through Switzerland and on to Italy, visiting Milan, where Stieglitz would see the “International Photographic Exhibition,” and Venice. They continued through Austria and Germany, stopping in Gutach and Stuttgart; to Holland, visiting Katwijk aan Zee and Rotterdam; and then to Belgium. They ended their trip in London.
