What You Can Expect

Roman Gladiator School: Learn How to Become a Gladiator

Roman Gladiator School Learn How to Become a Gladiator

Your gladiator lesson takes place at the Gladiator School of Rome, located near the Colosseum on the historic Appian Way. Specializing in the re-enactment of ancient Roman life and gladiator fighting, your instructors are members of the Historic Group of Rome and will begin your class by providing you with your costume: a traditional belt, tunic, leather gloves and a training sword known as a rudis.

Learn the basic skills of gladiator sword fighting before summoning your imagination and channeling your inner ancient Roman as you fight off ferocious lions and battle other sword-wielding gladiators. If you wish, you can participate in an optional gladiator tournament, complete with a prize for the victor; either way, all participants receive a certificate of accomplishment at the end of your lesson.

Friends and family are allowed to watch your class from the viewing platform. Admission to the Gladiator School of Rome Museum is also included so you can check out gladiator weapons and other artifacts.

Absolutely awesome. The boys have rated this a highlight of their holiday. It was so informative and fun that everyone had a great time. The children wanted to go back the next day! My husband also participated and had a good day but was the only adult in the group besides those of us spectators who had an equally great time.
