2children aged 10 and 7 plus parents.... We loved this. Our teacher (Aeriela?) was fantastic and we all had a wonderful, fun time.
The history talk was interesting but the fighting class was brilliant.
A must do for young families ( and older).
Best thing we have done in 9 countries ! was so much fun so knowledgeable really really worth doing a total must do in rome only suggestion take a taxi there amazing do it !
My kids ages 10, 8, 5 loved this. They thought it was the BEST part of our trip. They still talk about it today.
My 9 and 11 year olds loved this, and so did I (44) and my husband (45). Paolo was a great guide and instructor, and gave a good history which kept the kids interested. But of course the gladiator training was the best part. Definitely worth the money.
Although this tour is a bit pricey, my 2 children ages 6 and 7 loved it! It's all they have been talking about! The instructor, although Gladiator strict (in a good way..), kept them engaged and entertained the entire time. Beware of the taxi's taking you there... Find the route first or ask the company to give directions. We had a taxi driver take us all over. I had the route on my phone and saw him deviate pretty quickly. When I challenged him, he tried to make the 4 of us (young kids included) get out on a busy street. I called the instructor, put him on speaker phone and he got after the taxi driver. We ended up being 20 min late thanks to the taxi driver but the gladiator instructor more than made up for the lost time.
Our trainer was great - very informative and a great workout!
Learn how to become a gladiator is fabulous. The Society that runs it is very dedicated towards dissemination of the history of Rome. We learned SOOO much. My 10 year old son found it the best part of our 2.5 week Italy trip!!
5 stars! Paulo shared his vast knowledge of the Romans with much dignity, respect, and courteous beyond belief to us. The hands on learning of Roman battling brought that time to life. Memorable! Thank-you for the amazing experience!
We had such a special time. Where else do you get a history lesson, sports lesson and entertainment at the same time?
Ermes and his dog were the perfect gladiator trainers.
A 'must' for small and large children !
A real gladiator! My teenagers had a blast. The first part was museum where our family learned so much. We did this before the Forum and Colosseum tour. A great day!
Fantastic experience for my 7 y.o. son and me. For him it was the best event in Italy. Great lecture on ancient Rome and Roman legions, presentation and demonstration of weapons and then hands on practice on gladiator skills. Superb experience. Highly recommend!!! My son is now with me and he told me to give it 5Stars. I agree.
Fun !! Just simply fun to do, with a good bit of learning and a nice little workout .
