George Clooney Wedding

We were in Venice the day before George Clooney's Wedding, and although we didn't see him, I found out later he was staying in  a hotel on Giudecca Island where we went for a tour of a glass factory. The following day the tour we were on took us to Lake Como (Bellagio). Apparently, he has persuaded the local government to fine anyone coming near his lake home by either road or boat and tours are no longer allowed to take tourists past his house in Laglio. (Local swimmers are also banned from swimming less than 100 meters near his house).

I can understand them wanting privacy for their wedding. I heard they sold their wedding photos to 3 magazines and then donated the money to worthy causes, very nice.

I thought we were going to photo shop ourselves onto the boat. He picked a lovely place to wed, and cheers to him and his new wife. I truly hope it works out for them.
(and great trip!!!!)

Wow, he sure must carry some clout with the Italians. No wonder they selected Venice for their wedding.
