Choosing the venue for a congress is never easy. The success of a congress often depends on aspects that are apparently of secondary importance: organisational ability and efficiency, technological facilities, the elegance of the venue and quality of the accommodation and its amenities.
However what counts above all else is the prestige of the location. In this sense, Rome is ideal, with its fascinating and uniquely special setting, abounding in history. The city’s historical, archaeological and architectural heritage is breathtaking; in addition, the pleasures of excellent cuisine is always on offer, and a trip to the shops is essential.
We would like to suggest some shopping & food around the Ergife Palace Hotel (within 500 mt), to simplify the congressman's life !

For the shopping, we suggest to move in the centre of the city.
Rome, the eternal city, rich in history, art and culture but also a cosmopolitan city and important landmark in fashion and new trends. Arriving in Rome with the intention to follow a very fashionable route, therefore, you have only the embarassement of choice.
Starting point for this unusual, but no less fascinating tour of the city can only be the elegant and famous Via Condotti, one of the favorites for foreigners to purchase in Roman ateliers, from the most important Italian and international fashion designers such as Valentino, Armani, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Dior, to name a few.
Of note, again in Via Condotti, the precious jewels of Bulgari, Cartier and Federico Buccellati.
Equally glamorous and elegant Via Frattina which is, together with Via Borgognona and Via Bocca di Leone, home to some major world-renowned brands such as, it is worth to mention, the Trussardi store, the elegant shops of Cesare Paciotti and the refined Pal Zileri atelier.
Leaving the area near the Spanish Steps along via della Mercede you can arrive in Via del Corso, one of the main arteries of the city. Partially closed to traffic, it houses shops of various types, capable to meet different needs: from the clothing for women and for men, to underwear, accessories, footwear, and young and trendy fashion megastores.
To see, walking along Via del Corso, the charming and characteristic Galleria Colonna (now Galleria Alberto Sordi) with many shops in complete peace and in shelter from rain and cold. Here it is just to choose between the modern and captivating "Jam", the alternative "Pinko", and the elegant Calvin Klein boutique.
Via del Corso
Walking in Campo de Fiori, you must not miss Via dei Giubbonari. While you are moving towards Piazza Venezia, you cannot do without a walk along Via Nazionale, full of shops and boutiques.
In the area of the Vatican, finally, another must-stop is in Via Cola di Rienzo, where you can range from the classic and elegant boutiques as Luisa Spagnoli, Max Mara, Cerruti and David Saddler to large chains of fashion and glamour as Mango, Miss Sixty, Ethic, Fornarina, Onix, Benetton and Sisley, for a shopping at 360-degrees.
