My family of 6 loved our experience. We ranged from 72 to 10 years old and it was fun for us all. When we pulled up (off of Via Appia for you history buffs) we were approached by a man who looked like he just walked off the set of Spartacus. He was ripped and instantly engaged my two kids... More

Our family of five (2 teenage daughters and 8 year old son) had a great time! The gladiator training was fun and the museum was very interesting with lots of Roman history and gladiator gear! We initially booked this for my 8 year old son, but the entire family had a blast!

Most American children can only handle so much history or art, but this activity lets them be kids and learn as well. Kids are taught about the gladiators first and then learn fighting techniques (wooden swords) by a gladiator (the guy really looks the part). Staff was great and water was included. It is easiest to take a taxi and... More

We went with our 2 sons (ages 7 and 11). Happy that we got reservations at the last minute. The first 60 minutes is a walk through the museum, and the history and stories behind the artifacts. The second hour is the actual gladiator training in the arena. It's a great way for kids to actually experience some of the... More

My boys and I participated in this event on our first full day in Rome. Our instructor Alexandria was fantastic and made it enjoyable for both families. We learned about Roman soldier and gladiators, got to try on some helmets and swords, then finished with a fun hour of training and sword work. My boys said they had a great... More

My kids were so excited to visit this school. Our gladiator guide and instructor was very informative. He first took us into the museum to teach us about the history of gladiators and legionnaires, then into the ring for practice and duels. The kids loved trying to best each other and my hubby. My youngest is two and couldn't participate... More

Took my son who has just turned 11. He loves Greece and Rome and has been reading up on it. This gave him a chance to actually DO something when mostly we are just looking at things. I can 'look' in rome forever but an 11 year old tires of it. This was the remedy for all of that! It... More

We took our 12 year grandson to Gladiator School while on an 11 day tour of Italy. He was thrilled and had such a great time working off some energy and taking a break from the art architecture and touring. The staff at the school are very accommodating and work so well with different age groups. While we were at... More
