Johnny Depp Buys €10 Million Venice Pad
It's pretty awesome being Johnny Depp. While filming The Tourist in Venice, Italy last year, the actor fell in love with the location so much that he ponied up a nice 10 million euro and bought a gorgeous palazzo. Depp won a bidding war for the 17th century Palazzo Dona Sangiantoffetti. Say that ten times fast.
According to local newspaper La Nuova Venezia, the Hollywood star outbid an Arab prince for the empty building for 10 million euros.
The Palazzo is one of the only available buildings overlooking the Grand Canal and is situated in the Santa Croce area of Venice, not far from the Santa Maria Mater Domini Church. While it needs some restoring, it includes high decorated ceilings, a roof platform and ornate columns. The palazzo would be a holiday home for Depp, his French singer/actress partner Vanessa Paradis and their two children Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, eight.
Johnny, got an extra room for rent?
