Friday brought the arrival of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds to Italy’s Queen of the Adriatic, as the couple showed up at the 2012 Venice Film Festival.

Local reports said they made a low-key arrival in an SUV before boarding a boat to wend their way through the city on the water.

Last week, the duo, whose one-year anniversary together is coming up, got an early start on the Gossip Girl‘s 25th birthday with a sweet celebration at Manhattan’s Serendipity 3 restaurant.

Prior to that, they were spotted at the gym together.
