I went with my 12 year old and we had a great time. The trainer was very knowledgeable.
My grandson, 11, had the best time here.
We took our boys ages 7 and 8 years to the Roman Gladiator School after spending the morning visiting the Colosseum. To say it was the highlight of their trip to Rome would be an understatement. They enjoyed the museum, history and battle strategies. The loved trying on the armour. Then they were completely engaged throughout the training and thoroughly enjoyed the one-on-one combat at the end. It was all they could talk about after their visit to Rome. It really made it come alive for them.
My family and I had a great time. It was so informative and so much fun. Would definitely recommend it.
the gladiator training is amazing! the best trip in Rome! Gannicus our trainer was fantastic and treated us really well. I recommend the gladiator school highly and recommend Gannicus to train you!!!!
If you have a young son, I recommend this. My son still talks about his training!
We had a great time. Perfect activity to learn loads about Ancient Rome without realising its educational. 8 year old daughter loved it. Need to be prepared to throw yourself in, and to have a laugh!
Oh and take the mozzie repellant. We got eaten alive!
A great experience. Our instructor Piero was wonderful - knowledgeable, funny and entertaining - and both children and parents had fun. Great memories and photos to bring home. Our kids need activity-based learning, and they took more away from these 2 hours than from the Roman ruins we saw earlier in the day! Wholeheartedly recommend. We went for a late afternoon session, which was cooler, but watch out for the mosquitoes.
What a fun activity, we took our two grandchildren both 9 years of age, they had the best time and exercise, it was 2 hours of fun, learning history and play how to be a Gladiator, the instructor himself
was fabulous. Thank you much for the experience.
This was great fun and very educational. We were the only 3 people there so was a bit concerned as to whether it was actually going to take place as the place was still locked when we got there, but the instructor was beyond excellent! He opened up, and then gave us a guided tour of their museum, explaining all of the weapons and military strategy.
We then began the training and he made it great fun. My 13 year old loved it - and the husband enjoyed beating him at the fighting!
Well worth it - and the kids will love it.
