My kids had a total blast!! They absolutely loved it. I have mixed feelings because the first half of the experience takes you into a mini museum that was disappointing. This could have been really interesting and entertaining but it was a waste for a couple reasons. Our gladiator guide ended up being silly and funny, but he greeted us... More

Brilliant activity for my three boys aged 11,9 and 6. They preferred this to the Colosseum! I was amazed that my 6 year old was excited for the whole three hours despite getting off a 30hour flight from Australia that morning. The museum tour was interesting for them as they could touch all the helmets and armour. I also learnt... More

Recommended by our hotel we were a little sceptic about this activity but booked because our son insisted. We had a lot of fun, the lady gladiator was so much fun and taught us lots of the daily life of gladiators. Surely our son's best memory of Rome!

Our boys, ages 6 & 9 will remember this experience forever. It is a must do when in Rome. Our Gladiator was wonderful, funny and tough. We laughed, our kids laughed, we all had a great time. The kids get a pretty good workout, I would recommend going later in the evening to avoid the heat, there is little reprieve... More

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
