This was an awesome experience.
My instructor Paolo demonstrated a great knowledge about ancient Romans customs and history.
He taught me attack/defend strategies to fight like a gladiator.
I would recommend this tour to anyone!!! Ave Cesar!

Fantastic experience! This is not a cheesy gimmick as many would suspect. The museum had many replicas and artifacts that were thoroughly explained by our guide. Our gladiator was very knowledgeable, skillful, and took the experience seriously giving my kids a wonderful experience. This was truly one of the highlights of our time in Italy.

The entire session was fantastic! We had Paulo and he was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about all things Roman.

The museum was absolutely fantastic- very hands on we learnt a lot more there with Paulo than in other sites around Rome. The discussion on the weapons and armour and tactics was fascinating.

The training itself was very fun- he had a good sense of humour and we all had a great time training and fighting. I thoroughly recommend it!

It was straightforward to get a taxi to... and he called us a taxi to pick us up at the end. Easy Peasy!

Gladiator School was one of the great highlights of our trip to Rome. Our 9 year old son and 13 year old daughter did the school, and both loved it. We all enjoyed the discussion of Roman history and weapons with our leader, a centurion who is a carabinieri for his day job. He was very good with the kids,and with the adults. He had us all laughing with his drill sergeant approach to my son, and did a great job of explaining everything and keeping it very interesting. The kids loved learning the tactics of actual sword fighting, and had a wonderful time fighting each other with the padded swords. It made the rest of the trip even more enjoyable for the kids.

We cabbed to the school. There's a coffee bar about 250 yards down the road past the school where you can get cappuccino and food if you get to the school early. The school also called us a cab when we were done at it was there within a few minutes.

All in all, a great experience which i strongly recommend.

Best event in Rome for wannabe gladiators. Family with three boys under 10 years.
