Just call them the hosts with the most! George Clooney and Amal Clooney have a new A-list visitor shacking up at theirmulti-million dollar Lake Como retreat, where the couple has been living la dolce vita this summer. Edward Norton, his wife Shauna Robertson and their son, two-year-old Atlas, have descended on the Italian estate.

Ever the perfect host, the Monuments Men actor welcomed his friends down at the jetty, helping Ed unload luggage.

Amal wasn’t photographed, but she was probably inside waiting to greet her husband’s pals since George has explained that they have a rule never to be apart more than a week.

Last month Julia Roberts and her family also experienced the Clooney holiday charm, spending the Fourth of July weekend in Italy. It was an extra special break for the Pretty Woman who was also celebrating her 13th wedding anniversary with husband Danny Moder.

Julia is happy that her Ocean’s co-star George has also found lasting love. After meeting Amal over dinner in New York for the first time in April, the leading lady said she is “quite enamoured” of the British barrister.

Between the two sets of summer visitors the Clooneys had some quality couple time. George took his wife of nearly a year touring in the small Tuscan villages of Chianti, Poggio and Cortona.

Travelling alternately on an vintage Vespa Piaggio and in a 1960s Fiat 500, they enjoyed al fresco lunches, sampling Italy’s famous cuisine. Their choice of dishes included homemade pappardelle with eggplant and tomato sauce, and tomatoes stuffed with Neapolitan buffala mozzarella, washed down with Chianti wine.

“They looked like a scene out of a romantic movie. Both incredibly good-looking,” a waiter at one of the restaurants told People. “She was elegant in all her movements. They kept holding hands and leaning in for a kiss.”
