Holmes And Cruise To Wed At Mussolini's Home?
TOM CRUISE and KATIE HOLMES are reportedly planning to wed at Italian dictator BENITO MUSSOLINI's former World War II base by Lake Garda. The pair revealed last week (24OCT06) they would wed on 18 November (06) in Italy - 19 months to the day of their first date - but did not disclose the region. Holmes visited wedding venues in the lakes region of northern Italy following her Parisian shopping trip with new pal VICTORIA BECKHAM earlier this month (OCT06). British newspaper Daily Express claims Holmes has fallen for the exclusive Villa Feltrinelli hotel, which is where Mussolini was based during the war. An insider says, "Katie recently visited with Victoria and fell in love with it. It's ideal for her and Tom as it's hidden away by dense greenery on the landward side, while the view on the opposite side overlooking the lake is stunning. "Katie and Victoria were made aware that Mussolini used it as a base during the war, but seemed more interested that the glamorous likes of GRACE KELLY and ISADORA DUNCAN had stayed there."
