"How long after travertine tiles have gone down can I grout them......"

not until after you've sealed them.


"and how long after that can they be walked upon to put a new kitchen in?"

depends on the adhesive you are using.

Its not the tiles that you have to worry about but the adhesive and grout..

read the manufacturers instructions generally you would leave most for 224 hours after application of both adhesive and the grout. Of course if this relies on width of grout lines and depth of bedding adhesive. but 24 hours should do it...

btw you should seal them....alot..
