Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are moving to Venice for three months.

The Hollywood couple and their six children - Maddox, eight, Pax, six, Zahara, five, Shiloh, three, and 19-month-old twins Vivienne and Knox - arrived in the Italian canal city yesterday (16.02.10) and intend to stay there while Angelina films her new movie 'The Tourist'.

The family - who have homes in Los Angeles, France and New Orleans - are renting out the stunning canal side Palazzo, which is situated between the Rialto and Accademia parts of the city and faces San Toma.

After arriving in a private plane at Marco Polo Airport the Jolie-Pitt clan took two speedboats - one for their luggage and another for the family - to their new home.

Angelina - who begins filming on March 15 - has previously spoken about the family's jet-setting lifestyle.

She said: "It's hard, and maybe one day we'll have to stay in one place. I'm sure the kids are going to be 18 and say, "God, I just want to stay in one place." They'll never want to leave home."

The couple recently denied reports their five-year relationship was in trouble.
