George Clooney and Stacy Keibler have taken their romance to Europe.
The lovebirds, who started seeing each other last summer, touched down this week in Italy to spend some down time at the actor’s well-known villa on Lake Como.
Clooney, 51 and Keibler, 32, were spotted taking a boat ride with friends. Dressed in a summery teal and white jumper, with a matching hat, Keibler showed off her toned arms and shoulders as the couple hit the water. Clooney, too, was dressed in his warm weather best with sky blue pants and a light button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up.
Clooney has often been photographed with celebrity pals at his villa. Last summer he hosted a group of friends, including Cindy Crawford, her husband Rande Gerber, as well as his The Ides of March costars Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood.
In 2009 David Beckham and his family subleased the villa from Clooney, and in 2003 The Help star Viola Davis spent her honeymoon there.
