A great way to spend a couple of hours learning to fight like a gladiator in realistic arena surroundings. A little musem adds to the learning with freindly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Book AM as it was very hot PM

Fantastic experience. The museum is great. Our trainer gave us an exceptional lecture about Roman way of fighting and the way Romans conquered their enemies. He could even handle our 7 year daughter, who wants to obey any rules. Highly recommended.

This is a fun class and something that will make a great story to tell your friends. Especially if you're tired of old stuff and museums, here you get to move around hopping and ducking on the Sparticus machine. The only problem is that it's hard to find at the end of a dirt road number 18 with a barking dog and the taxi driver left me in the middle of nowhere. If you call them, they will tell you how to get there.

My 16 year old son and husband had an amazing experience! My husband was not at all keen on doing this and I think he enjoyed it more than my son!!! The first hour is spent learning the different battle techniques the Gladiators used, then followed by teaching them to fight with swords. The man who leads the tour (can't remember his name) was a wealth of information and was extremely accommodating as they were about 20 minutes late because IT IS HARD TO FIND!!!! Take the advice of all the others and USE A TAXI!!! It's off a dirt road near the ancient wall. Even the taxi driver wasn't too sure where it was and used his GPS . If you are in the main city or Trastevere - make sure to allow at least 30 minutes so you are not late. DO IT!!!

Absolutely fantastic! A little hard to find, but well worth the search. Walk all the way down the alley and you will find it. My kids, and myself had a blast. The instructor is great with the kids.

My husband and I both signed up to attend and I was unfortunately sick but still tagged along to watch. My husband has a blast and I loved watching him and the other participants. The host whose name I can not remember, was great! He was also very sweet. He offered my tea when he found out I wasn't well. He knew his stuff and he ran a really good program.

Roman Gladiator School was an exceptional experience for both myself and my son. The museum tour was very educational, and helped us to understand the life and times of the Gladiator. Fight training was a blast! We first trained with the ruduis, the wooden sword, then moved to steel spatha, helmets and metal protective shields. Our trainer coached us on the basics of striking and defending, then led us through drills in our full combat gear. As martial artiest both my son and I really appreciated the training and effort our coach gave to us. This was an amazing experience and I recommend it to everyone, from the martial artiest to the entire family.

This was fantastic. A lot of fun and very informative. My 11 year old son had a great time. Absolutely get a taxi to this venue, it does not cost much and really the only way to get there.
