This was an absolute must! In the end my husband took part with my 10 yr old. My daughter was unwell. The gladiator who took their class was absolutely first rate! He looked the part, he made it interesting, told us all about the different types of weapons, armour, moves etc for each level of fighter in the Roman Empire. Then it was training time. They had to do a few laps of a small arena, dodging sandbags, doing commando rolls etc and then it was time to learn how to fight. He used just the right amount of humour and seriousness. Taught them some basic moves/blocks with swords etc and then they got to fight with each other! Very well organised, he was an ex wrestler and professional gladiator. Brilliant!

Perhaps because we were the only participants and thus got very personal attention, we rank this experience among the top activities done while in Rome. If traveling during warmer months, then we recommend to go in the morning while it is cooler.

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!
