Skrøbelev Gods (Skrøbelev Manor) is a traditional Danish estate dating back to 1669. The name has been changed from 'Skrøbelevgaard' to the current name in 2007. It is located on the island of Langeland in the south of Denmark. The Manor House has recently been renovated and is now being used as a venue for weddings and other celebrations. The estate features a large courtyard, surrounded by the main building, green meadows with its display of strutting peacocks, cascading fountain, moat and the bridge which leads you to the church. The Estate has 6 horse stables and the area is a relatively popular destination for eco-tourism and fishing as the island is a thin strip of land, surrounded by the sea on both sides.

Super menneskevarmt og venligt. Rigtig god, vedkommende og engageret modtagelse med rundvisning og gode værelser. Menuen var velkomponeret, meget vesmagende og elegant. Hyggeligt i den store "riddersal ". Med spøgelseshistorier efter kaffen. Personalet engageret og professionelt. Skrøbeløv Gods får gæsterne til at føle sig hjemme og velkomne. BRAVO. Et virkeligt godt sted at besøge.

There is a beautiful area outside the building with a fountain. It gives a beautiful sight. The building inside is modern but is made in authentic old Victorian style. The building itself is plain , but the outside space and the decoration inside makes up for it. Good service generally quite luxurious feeling. The food is tasty and there are possibilities for some flexibility.

Excellent food and service. Though a little pricy and the rooms could need a minor upgrade. The location is perfect near Rudkobing assuming you have a car.

Very romantic place. The food was decent, and the rooms are very nice. A bit too pricy overall unfortunately

Palazzo Colonna

The Palazzo Colonna is a palatial block of buildings built in part over ruins of an old Roman Serapeum, and has belonged to the prestigious Colonna family for over twenty generations.

The first part of the palace dates from the 13th century, and tradition holds that the building hosted Dante in his visit to Rome. The first documentary mention notes that the property hosted Cardinal Giovanni and Giacomo Colonna in the 13th century. It was also home to Cardinal Oddone Colonna before he ascended to the papacy as Martin V (1417–1431).

With his passing, the palace was sacked during feuds, and the main property passed into the hands of the Della Rovere family. It returned to the Colonna family when Marcantonio I Colonna married Lucrezia Gara Franciotti Della Rovere, the niece of pope Julius II. The Colonna"s alliance to the Habsburg power, likely protected the palace from looting during the Sack of Rome (1527).

Starting with Filippo Colonna (1578–1639) many changes have refurbished and create a unitary complex around a central garden. Architects including Girolamo Rainaldi and Paolo Marucelli labored on specific projects. Only in the 17th and 18th centuries were the main facades completed. Much of this design was completed by Antonio del Grande (including the grand gallery), and Girolamo Fontana (decoration of gallery). In the 18th century, the long low facade designed by Nicola Michetti with later additions by Paolo Posi with taller corner blocks (facing Piazza Apostoli) was constructed recalls earlier structures resembling a fortification.

The main gallery (completed 1703) and the masterful Colonna art collection was acquired after 1650 by both the cardinal Girolamo I Colonna and his nephew the Connestabile Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna and includes works by Lorenzo Monaco, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Palma the Elder, Salviati, Bronzino, Tintoretto, Pietro da Cortona, Annibale Carracci (painting of The Beaneater), Guercino, Francesco Albani, Muziano and Guido Reni. Ceiling frescoes by Filippo Gherardi, Giovanni Coli, Sebastiano Ricci, and Giuseppe Bartolomeo Chiari celebrate the role of Marcantonio II Colonna in the battle of Lepanto (1571). The gallery is open to the public on Saturday mornings.

The older wing of the complex known as the Princess Isabelle"s apartments, but once housing Martin V"s library and palace, contains frescoes by Pinturicchio, Antonio Tempesta, Crescenzio Onofri, Giacinto Gimignani, and Carlo Cesi. It contains a collection of landscapes and genre scenes by painters like Gaspard Dughet, Caspar Van Wittel (Vanvitelli), and Jan Brueghel the Elder.

Along with the possessions of the Doria-Pamphilij and Pallavacini-Rospigliosi families, this is one of the largest private art collections in Rome.
