Roman Gladiator School: Learn How to Become a Gladiator

Roman Gladiator School Learn How to Become a Gladiator

During your two-hour lesson, your gladiator instructor will teach you how to fight with authentic weapons used by the gladiators of ancient Rome. Lessons are organized and led by members of the Historic Group of Rome who specialize in the re-enactment of Roman life and gladiatorial combat.

Don't miss this opportunity to re-create Roman history and life as a gladiator. Dressed in a traditional gladiator tunic, belt, leather protective glove and rudis (training sword), you can let your imagination run wild as you play like Spartacus for a day, fighting off ferocious lions and sword-wielding warriors!

Next, learn the basic techniques of gladiatorial sword fighting and take part in an optional gladiatorial tournament, with the winner receiving a victory prize. All participants receive a certificate of accomplishment.

If you're fascinated by Roman Gladiators but not sure if you're up for it, you can choose to watch friends or family free of charge. There's a great viewing platform.

Are you up to the challenge of this truly Roman experience combining culture, sport and ancient legends!

Our instructor Paolo was enthusiastic and very passionate, he appealed to both father and son. From the museum tour to the actual training, it was well done! Definitely a highlight of our two week trip in Italy! We are back home and still using our skills only now we use foam lightsabers. Getting there was a little tricky, plan on a cab ride!

Fantastic! A bit difficult to find due to unhelpful taxi driver but well wroth the effort. The museum and history lesson was awesome, learnt so much. Then my husband and two boys 8 and 10 had the BEST TIME EVER training and fighting like a gladiator! They didn't want to leave. Highly recommend this to families.
