Beyoncé, Jay Z, & Blue Ivy Escape to Italy

In celebration of Beyoncé’s 33rd birthday last week, the Carters escaped to Italy for a romantic and relaxing vacation. Jay Z put his arm around his wife as they strolled through the seaside town of Portofino before boarding a boat to their yacht. Bey looked casual, yet chic in a floral-print bikini and sarong, while Jay kept cool in shorts.

Once on board their private yacht, Blue Ivy had some fun, playing with water balloons, while her mother snapped photos.

The couple will return to the stage for the final two shows on their “On the Run Tour” in Paris on September 12-13. The concerts will be taped for an HBO special airing September 20.
