Selena Gomez and The Weeknd may be the new Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, but that doesn’t mean that their PDA-filled Italian vacay was any less luxe. From super snazzy hotel suites to fine-dining, private tours and, natch, a luxe jet to take them across the world, this certainly isn’t a budget-friendly getaway.
The fine folks over at E! broke down the celeb’s potential spending while abroad and came up with an estimated cost that may blow your budget-conscious mind. If you’re thinking anywhere in the area of a few thousand dollars, you’re obviously living in a frugally minded fantasy. If you’ve jumped up all the way to a million, then we definitely want to check out the kind of vacay you’d plan with a seemingly unlimited budget. Bring your guess into the quarter mill area and you’ve hit the mark.
Precisely, we’re talking about a $246,000 getaway. Yowza!
So how exactly are they spending so much cash? Well, their room(s) at the Belmond Villa San Michele alone would cost in the area of $3,000 to $4,000 per night if they opted for a suite. However, if they instead go for the luxe Limonaia Suite, they’ll be billed around $7,000 per night, and if they’d rather the Limonaia Villa, they’ll need to shell out $10,000 per night. They also spent some time at Hotel Gritti Palace, which would add an extra $8,842 per night to their travel costs.
On top of that, the duo have been spotted dining at Trattoria Borgo Antico (approximately $62 for a dinner for two), enjoying a private tour of the Galleria Dell’Academia ($240), and getting around town in a rented limo ($1,500), as well as taking pics during their rides on a private water taxi service ($1,000+ for three days in Venice).
Though this all adds up to a pretty pricey trip already, the major expense is in fact the private jet from LA to Italy and back, which costs a whopping $205,500 for the week.
If this is indeed all a publicity stunt, let’s hope they can write it off — otherwise, this is already a wildly expensive romance.
