Roman Gladiator School: Learn How to Become a Gladiator
Reviewed by: Nicholas S, July 2015
We have two boys ages 14 and 11. They really enjoyed gladiator school. The first hour was very informative. Kids and adults all enjoyed learning the techniques of a gladiator. Our instructor Pablo was knowledgeable, kind and funny. This was an excellent break from the museums and churches.

Fantastically fun for both participants and the crowd. We could have spent the day in the museum learning history. Our fearless gladiator owner taught us to much and allowed us to wear the helmets. Then came the training which was wonderful followed by the battle

My kids son 13, daughter 11 LOVED this activity in Rome. We took a break from the traditional touring and participated in Gladiator School. The history was discussed and then the kids became gladiators and history came alive in the hands on activity. I will warn you...there is physical activity here...running, push-ups, etc. The instructor of the class plays a character...one who is teaching slaves or prisoners to fight, and our instructor stayed in character until the end. At first, the harshness made my daughter nervous, but by the end...she, and our son, will tell you it was one of the activities they will always remember about our family trip to Europe.

Paolo was great. Very knowledgable and took care and time to answer all of our questions. Even about the evolution of the maniple.

We did this tour several years ago, and it was just awesome. When we booked this time, we thought it would be hard to beat that first experience, but it definitely did. Just an awesome experience for my son and our family. Best activity of our vacation!
