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 !
Fun !! Just simply fun to do, with a good bit of learning and a nice little workout .
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.
It was a blast! The staff are wonderfully committed, interesting and knowledgeable people. My kids wanted to do it again the next day!
I highly recommend this to all families. It was the highlight of our vacation! My children age 12 and 17 had alot of fun and learned alot! The school is not far from central Rome, we took a cab with no problems. The metro is also close by.
The staff and Roman actor were fantastic! They were helpful, fun and informative. My moody 17 year even loved and enjoyed it, which is saying something! Go do this for your kids! They will love it!
Absolutely amazing. Even the adults were engaged as we learned to battle with wooden swords and shields. Guides were informative, fun and entertaining. A must do, especially with kids. Worth the cab ride!
Guides taught a lot about Ancient Rome, gladiators and weapons in their "museum" in a fun way.
Both educational and extremely fun. my wife and three daughters ( age 11, 9, 7) all had a great time.
Highly recommended to families with boys who are between 7 and 12 years old. The whole family (including the adults) will have a lot of fun.
Kids, ages 10, 12 and 16 loved this. Place was hard to find. Taxi did not take us directly there, but at the end of a street closed off to cars. Walked close to 3/4 of mile to get there after taxi dropped us off.
We did this after our tour of the Colosseum. My 14 year old son had a great time! He left wanting to do it again! Very informative and fun for spectators too.
It was fantastic! We still don't know who had more fun. My husband and I watching our two adult sons "train" to be Roman gladiators, or the kids playing with swords! The instructor was wonderful, very informative about the history of gladiators, very helpful with the "training", and very friendly. He made the experience great! We had the last class of the day, and he even waited with us until our taxi picked us up. We still talk about the experience and show everybody the pictures. And, how many people can say they trained to be a Roman gladiator in Rome, Italy!
If you are travelling with kids, as we are, this is a wonderful thing to do in Rome. We all enjoyed the class tremendously and Marcus, our teacher in all gladiator and Roman legion related matters, was fantastic. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable, he made this morning both fun and informative. The jostling afterwards got all our jet legged limbs moving! Advice: take a taxi at least on the way there as a rather hard to find location in the Roman suburbs.
