This was a highlight of our holiday trip to Rome, located outside the city (c 20€ taxi ride - just give them the address and they will find it!) - excellent fun, tired the kids and grown up out! Get them to book a taxi back to the city is easiest and quickest way home!

We're not usually big on guided tours or experiences, but this one was a winner. It's a bit out of the way, geographically, but worth the trip. The instructor had a great, dry sense of humor. Showed us the traditional gladiator garb/weapons, involving kids in guessing the uses and reasons for different things, putting the garb on them, etc. Then we went through training, a boot camp obstacle course before learning the fighting moves and testing them against each other. Excellent program - highly recommend!

Our 16 and 18 year old really enjoyed the Roman Gladiator School and appreciated the enthusiasm, wit and knowledge of the instructors. We would definitely recommend it!

Gladiator school was great! The instructor was informative and dynamic. My only suggestion is to have better directions to the venue, as the taxi dropped us off at the main road, and we didn't know that we had to come up the alley. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

This was a fantastic experience for my 12 year old son and me. Paolo spoke English very well, explained everything in detail, had a great sense of humor, and was very knowledgable about Roman military history. There is a small museum of military history and gladiatorial items that is charming and very interesting. Importantly, Paolo called a cab for us at the end of the session and we only had a short 10 minute wait. The school provided plenty of water. The school was a short 15 minute cab ride from our hotel in the center of Rome. I highly recommend this for a great experience with kids. Thanks Paolo. We'll be back on our next trip to Rome!
