Great time for the whole family

We had a training session with Gladiator Marco Valerio and had loads of fun ! Our two sons 8 and 6 loved every minute of it. They learned a lot about Rome as a "state of mind".

Firstly the school is very expasive.In older videos in youtube you hear about 70 dollars price. Here are the prices from 02/05/2014. 1 person=120 euro, 2 persons=180 euro, 3-5 persons=240 euro, 6-10=300 euro and exceeding 10 persons and more is 20 euro for each one. Also only as a group is it worth to visit it because each pays only... More

My son did the gladiator training, which he thoroughly enjoyed and we loved watching him have such a great time. The guy who did the training was great, sooooo knowledgeable, but really funny too. When he was talking in the little museum and letting the children try on the different helmets it was clear he really enjoys his job. A... More

Our boys LOVED this gladiator school so much, my husband took them back a second time. We were in Rome for 5 days with our three sons (8 months, 6 years, and 8 years), and the two older ones took part. We took the boys on our second day in Rome, in the morning. The "gladiator training" begins with a... More

My teenage son and I had a fun and information few hours learning some sword fighting techniques used by gladiators. It was a fun way to learn about Roman history. The little museum was great as we could try on the various helmets and shields to get a better idea of how it felt to be a combatant.

We took time to find this little place and our son who was 13 at the time absolutely had a great time. They even encouraged his father to try his had at being a gladiator. The history was appreciated and the chance to be a gladiator for our son and to defeat other "gladiators". It was a fun, safe time.

Having visited the Colosseum in the morning, a trip to Gladiator school rounded off a perfect day for my seven year old son (dad enjoyed it too!). The museum was very interesting, but it was the fighting and learning about the lives of Gladiators which had him chattering excitedly for hours afterwards. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon making very... More

On a week long trip to Rome, this was the kids' favourite attraction! There was a one hour tour of the museum, made interesting by the guide (a gladiator) telling stories and pretending to poke the kids with weapons. Then a one hour lesson where the kids were put through their paces, training camp, learning how to be a gladiator,... More

Had read reviews before taking 3 grandchildren to Rome (ages 15, 15, & 12). The reviews most helpful were those giving directions to school's location. I gave our taxi driver the school's address; he had no problem finding it - located down a 'dirt road' off the main road. I was reassured that we were in the correct location when... More

It was difficult to get there even by taxi and costly. Place was run down. Spent an hour in a Museum? boring. Not worth the money and time.
