My 11 yr old twins loved the experience. I joined in and learned much more about gladiators and their history than I expected. I would suggest the morning sessions for lower temperatures.

Gladiator school is fantastic for kids and for adults. We learned a lot about Roman soldiers, gladiators and the Colosseum. And the fight training and tournament were so much fun.

This was great. We were the only ones there. The instructor was wonderful and when my wife showed up late to watch, she immediately offered to extend the lesson a little longer so my wife could watch. My son loved to try on the helmets and use a real sword!

Our family (A 47 year old, 37 year old and 16.5 year old - it would be great for younger families as well) had SO MUCH FUN!!!! It was nice to get off the beaten path and play - and we did PLAY! Our gladiator instructor provided us with a historical tour of gladiator life, weapons and history before the games began. GREAT time here!!! Thank you!

This experience was the highlight of my kids' trip to Rome! They came back energized, excited, and full of enthusiasm for this tangible connection with history. Well done. Great fun!

The highlight of our trip in Rome. There is so much history in Rome but Gladiator school was a chance to live it. My sons, both 17, will remember it for a long time. Our instructor was a great teacher and a profession fighter. Right out of central casting. Do take a cab to the school. Excellent. Only wish would be a longer more advanced school.

This activity is great for children. The 10 year old traveling with us said this was their favorite thing about the trip - and we did alot. The trainer provided good information and was very accomodating.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. First an educational tour through the museum, complete with replica weapons, which we got to handle. We also got to wear helmets, which were heavy, and sight restricting. It is one thing to read this, another to experience it. The physical training was done by a trainer named Marcus, who was superb. He had 5 participants aged from about 8 - 58 (me), with different degrees of experience and inate ability. He managed to teach us all something, and this is no easy trick. PS. I am a Filipino Martial Arts instructor, with experience teaching adults and children, so I appreciate the difficulty of what was accomplished. A thoroughly enjoyable, and educational experience.

My grandson loved the entire experience. He loved trying on the various uniforms and learning about the Roman Legions. The instructor was excellent. He tested Jesse for agility and speed before he gave him a training shield and gladiatore. My only problem was inability to reach the school in Rome for the necessary telephone confirmation.

AWESOME. My 13 year old son was only student and instructor was briliant. Booked morning class as fewer students. Learnt so much and we both really enjoyed.

Amazing experience that my son will be talking about for years to come. Don't be put off by the appearance of the place down a funny lane way when you arrive. Really well done.
