After the Shelleys left Switzerland at the end of the summer of 1816, Byron traveled to Italy, where he settled in Venice. The Shelleys visited him there in 1818, remaining in Italy until Percy’s death in 1822. A year later, Mary was forced to return to England, where she spent the rest of her life.
