Awesome experience. Marco is an excellent guide and instructor. He is very passionate in terms of providing a background of the gladiators and instruction in the use of the gladius (sword). He truly brought history alive. It was the highlight of my trip to Rome and I highly recommend this tour for those visiting Rome.Reviewed by: William K, November 2013
Not only our 3 children 7,9, and 11 (a girls) enjoyed this tour but so did the adults. Lots of information about the Roman soldiers and gladiator history. Our guide, who I am embarrassed to say I have forgotten his name, was wonderful and made this a very special day for our children. They have bought gladiator kits, practice their fighting and tell everyone about what has been the highlight of our 4 month tour.Reviewed by: Tracey M, November 2013
I gave this adventure as a birthday gift for my brother in law while we were in Rome. He is an American veteran and world conflict historian and was extremely excited about the opportunity. I was a bit worried when he was the only student but his instructor, Marco Valereo, provided a private training session that was amazing. It couldn't have been a better birthday present!Reviewed by: dano210, October 2013
Even better than expected! We saved it till our last day and after visiting the Colloseum which helped to build up anticipation. My 7 year old son was itching to get to the gladiatoring but loved trying on the excellent replicas of Roman uniforms first. We had a very informative and interesting tour of the museum before heading to the training arena. Paulo, our guide and trainer, readily answered the steady stream of questions and provided a fantastic insight into the life of the Roman soldiers as well as dispelling some common beliefs on the gladiators.
The training brought out the inner Gladiator in all of us and was just long enough to cover the moves, allow for some fierce combat and just short enough to save anyone from humiliation. The only thing that you should be wary of are the biting flies that made an appearance after the morning rain, they ate me alive BUT my gladiator training prevailed!
This was the perfect end to our trip - in my son's words, "That was AWESOME! "
Absolute gas - took a 7 and 70 year old and we had a great time !Reviewed by: Dawn B, September 2013
