After keeping a low-profile amidst reports of an impending split, the couple have decided to shift base to Italy's canal city for a three-month stint while Jolie films her new movie The Tourist there.
The couple, nicknamed 'Brangelina' by the tabloids treated their four oldest children to ice cream today after arriving in Venice last night.
The A-list couple 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 on Monday afternoon, the family took two speedboats, one for their huge amount of luggage and another for the children, to their new home.
Jolie, 34, isn't expected to begin filming until March 15 which gives the family plenty of time to get to know the maze of streets and canals of Venice.
All four children were wrapped up in coats and hats to protect them from the chilly weather, while blue-eyed Shiloh Nouvel, three, showed her cheeky side as she wore a monkey hat complete with oversized ears.
Holding tight to daddy's hand was five-year-old Zahara Marley, while boys Maddox, seven, and Pax Thien, six, skipped alongside their stunning mother.
After the sugary treat, Pitt, 46, made a brief stop at a store to pick some alcohol for the adults.
Their move to Venice is yet another new location for the couple's increasingly nomadic existence.
In recent years, the Jolie-Pitts have lived in Cambodia, France, New York, New Orleans and Los Angeles.
Their arrival in Venice comes after a low-key Valentine's Day for the couple, who recently threatened legal action over reports they were about to split.
