Magic Johnson lives The good life in Europe!

The 63-year-old NBA Hall of Famer shared a preview of his exclusive annual summer vacation on Wednesday — this year, featuring special cameos from Michael Jordan, Samuel L. Jackson and judge Greg Mathis.

“Tonight we enjoyed an amazing dinner at the famous Da Paolino Ristorante aka The Lemon Tree Restaurant in Capri, Italy!” Johnson wrote. “AND I got to hang out with my great friend and greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan, and his wife Yvette, Sam and LaTanya Jackson, Judge Greg and Linda Mathis, and John and Vicki Palmer.”

In a photo carousel, the seemingly relaxed friends posed for a group photo. In another snap, Magic and Jordan smiled as musicians serenaded them at the iconic restaurant.

The final image shows Magic and his wife, Cookie, 64, posing on the 296ft Phoenix 2 superyacht they chartered for a Mediterranean cruise.

The boat can accommodate 12 people and offers seven cabins, including a duplex main apartment accessible by its own staircase and a private sundeck with jacuzzi, according to its website.

Over the past few weeks, the group has also traveled to Greece and France, dined at Michelangelo in Antibes and treated themselves to chilled bar at the Cala di Volpe hotel in Sardinia, according to Magic’s publications on the social networks.
