Probably our favorite event of the entire trip. Our gladiator instructor was AMAZING!
Was so much fun for the adults and children! I had read that the children got to keep their tunics afterwards but I guess this changed as we did not get to keep ours. It would have been a nice souvenir.
Fun and something different! Guide was very knowledgable and friendly!
If you only do one thing in Rome with your child this should be it. My 8yr old son had the most amazing experience that will stay with him for life. As soon as we left he was asking when we could go back. The people at the school transported us back to roman times in a truly exciting way. Fantastic!
I took my 6 year old son here for a morning in gladiator school. He loved it. The museum visit was really interesting and our Gladiator took so much time to explain everything and pitch it at a level which was both informative and really interesting. He loved the fighting and it was lots of fun! He will remember this as his highlight of his Rome trip.
My boys aged 10 and 8 loved this activity. Very informative and good fun too!
I can't think of a more fun way for kids of all ages to spend two hours in Rome. I went with my two boys - 12 and 9 - while my wife and daughters went shopping. Marcus, our instructor, was fun and educational and did very well to handle a group with some very young ones in it. It's a trip that will be remembered for many years. Great, great fun if you fully enter into the spirit.
This tour was great, fun and a true workout. The instructor gave us a lot of info about how the Romans soldiers and gladiators lived and trained. Gave me a new respect for gladiators.
We (wife, 8 year old son and myself) had an absolute blast! Museum section brought history alive and made it real, training was satisfyingly tough and the sparring great fun. Hot, sweaty and beaming smiles at the end. We will remember the refrain 'kill her! kill her!' for years to come :)
Brilliant morning had by all the family ranging from 10 year old boy to 17 year old girl and mum and dad. Gladiator was friendly and funny and we all enjoyed learning the different sword moves. An excellent way to spend our son's birthday!
An experience not to be missed. We had lots of fun and learnt a lot. The museum is very impressive and our instructor, Paolo, was not only very interesting and informative, he was fun and very friendly and accomodating. It was a definite highlight in our European tour and we would highly recommended.
