My husband and I attended gladiator school on our honeymoon and we were sure it would be us and lots of kids. It was! There were a few families and one other couple on their honeymoon. The first part of the course was a learning portion in the "museum" where we learned the real history of the gladiators from a... More

When you simply can not take the long lines and crowds, and you kids are about ready to go back home on their own - this is what you need! A short trip from the city (take a cab, really), you get a light-hearted though educational history on the Roman empire, with emphasis on why they were so good at... More

My hubby and I were the only people booked into a class that morning so we had a teacher to ourselves. First stop was the museum. We’re very interested in Ancient Rome so for us it was terrific to see the weapons and helmets used by the gladiators and to learn about the features of each type but young kids... More

It is much better than presented, the kids will super love it. You start with gladiators and Rome history and then training and games.

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

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".

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.
