My grandson, 11, had the best time here.

We took our boys ages 7 and 8 years to the Roman Gladiator School after spending the morning visiting the Colosseum. To say it was the highlight of their trip to Rome would be an understatement. They enjoyed the museum, history and battle strategies. The loved trying on the armour. Then they were completely engaged throughout the training and thoroughly enjoyed the one-on-one combat at the end. It was all they could talk about after their visit to Rome. It really made it come alive for them.

We had a great time. Perfect activity to learn loads about Ancient Rome without realising its educational. 8 year old daughter loved it. Need to be prepared to throw yourself in, and to have a laugh!

Oh and take the mozzie repellant. We got eaten alive!

A great experience. Our instructor Piero was wonderful - knowledgeable, funny and entertaining - and both children and parents had fun. Great memories and photos to bring home. Our kids need activity-based learning, and they took more away from these 2 hours than from the Roman ruins we saw earlier in the day! Wholeheartedly recommend. We went for a late afternoon session, which was cooler, but watch out for the mosquitoes.
