The Bennifer love tour continues.

On Wednesday, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were pictured at their next pit-stop as they arrived in Nerano, Italy, onboard their $130M super-yacht Valerie. 

The loved-up pair appeared to be still enamored with one another as they exchanged glances while lounging on their luxurious vessel. 

Jennifer, 52, appeared to be taking a breather at one point as she displayed her taut tummy in a striped bikini top while relaxing on a chair.

Meanwhile, Ben, 48, looked ready for a night out in a smart-casual ensemble, including a tie-dye Ralph Lauren polo shirt. 

The on-again couple arrived in Capri, Italy on Tuesday, after narrowly avoiding her ex-fiance Alex Rodriguez in Saint-Tropez who was there to celebrate his 46th birthday with friends – including a rumored new love interest, NFL reporter Melanie Collins.

However, the Jenny from the Block star did not wait around and was already on her way with Ben to the next destination before ARod’s big celebrations.

 Their yacht, named Valerie, is currently priced at €110,000,000 ($129,817,600) and has provided the couple with a luxury place to stay, as well as recreate steamy scenes from her 2002 music video Jenny from the Block.

A gym with a panoramic view of the ocean opens out onto an outdoor space with room for dining and a fountain that lights up at night.

Launched in 2011 and refitted in 2019, the vessel has six decks all served by an elevator and has an onboard 20 foot-long pool and a Jacuzzi which is one of five outdoor spaces. With its spectacular outdoor dining area, the boat was designed with London’s iconic hotel Claridge’s in mind.  

The main deck and lounge are designed for hosting and centered around a uniquely designed self-playing piano.

It has a top-speed of 17 knots (around 20 mph), a cruising speed of 12.5 knots, and a range of 6000 nautical miles, and costs €950,000 ($1,119,000) per week to charter. It is currently on the market for $130M and being sold by Dynamiq Brokerage.
