Family album: Beyoncé, Jay Z and Blue's Italian vacation

When billionaire financial consultant Noam Gottesman and Bianca Duenas wed in Florence, Beyoncé and Jay Z saw the perfect opportunity for an Italian vacation. The power couple brought along daughter Blue Ivy (TAG) to indulge in some pizza and gelato, take in art and more – and Queen Bey shared a play by play with fans on her website.

Several snaps show the duo, who were accompanied by their adorable three-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, indulging in the many delights Italy has to offer. Beyoncé – who has recently been following a vegan diet – put her eating restrictions to one side as the tucked into pizza and ice cream.

One photo shows the singer posing in a local restaurant before a plate of Margherita pizza while another shows her husband and daughter sitting at a table in a traditional Italian establishment. The trio seem to explored the historic city the best way – on foot – taking plenty of snaps on their way.

No doubt at Blue’s request, Beyoncé took a ride on a carousel in Florence’s Piazza della Repubblica with her daughter. The mother-daughter duo wore matching black ensembles.

The music power couple were also spotted at The Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze, where they took part in a group tour of the prestigious art academy.

Some snaps show Blue wearing a floral dress with giant bows in her hair from inside their ornate hotel room. Beyoncé also shared several short videos of the trio.

The 20-time Grammy winner and her hubby also got to have a date night away from their little one. One shot showed Jay Z looking sharp in a head-to-toe white outfit as he stood in a doorway.

In February, Beyonce announced that she was launching her very own meal plan called 22 Days Nutrition in partnership with personal trainer Marco Borges.

“I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example. He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle,” she wrote in an official statement. Adding: “He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try. If I can do it, anyone can.”
