Leonardo Dicaprio has taken Blake Lively on a series of luxurious dates around Europe.

The pair - who are reportedly dating - were first spotted together on a yacht in Cannes, France and while they have so far refused to confirm their relationship, pals close to Leonardo have revealed he took the 'Gossip Girl' star to Venice yesterday (02.06.11), where they were spotted on a water taxi on a canal.

Leonardo also treated the actress to a helicopter ride to Saint-Paul de Vence, France for a $500 lunch at La Colombe d'Or Restaurant, a stay at the $5,000-a-night suite at Hotel de Paris and a trip on a $52 million yacht and friends have revealed the 'Inception' star is determined to please Blake.

A source told US magazine: "I've never seen him like this with a girl."

Blake - who previously dated her 'Gossip Girl' co-star Penn Badgley, is said to have had a crush on Leonardo ever since he starred in 'Titanic' in 1997, with a source commenting: "Being Charmed by him isn't the worst thing in the world!"
