Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie say 'buongiorno' to Venice, their new home In recent years the Jolie-Pitts have set up homes in New Orleans, France, Cambodia, New York, and Los Angeles. 

Now Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, plus their brood of six, can add Venice to that list.

The Hollywood family have arrived in the Italian city where they'll be spending the next few months while Angelina films The Tourist with Johnny Depp

Onlookers were delighted to see the megastar couple out and about, introducing their kids to the place they'll be calling home for the near future.

And what better way to kick start their Italian stay than a taste of the local delicacy, gelato

Wrapped up against the cold, Maddox, Shiloh – cute as a button in a fluffy hat with monkey ears – Pax and Zahara – joined their doting parents at an ice cream parlour.

The happy family scene is just further proof that the split reports of recent weeks are totally wide of the mark.

Earlier the couple had been spotted with their 19-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne, who are rarely seen in public.

The family are staying in one of the city's most luxurious hotels, the Palazzo Mocenigo.

Located on the Grand Canal, between the Rialto Bridge and St Mark's Square, the 16th century palace has played host to some of the world's most famous politicians, poets, artists and philosophers.
