Description

Channel your inner Russell Crowe as you don authentic Roman attire and learn to use realistic weaponry. Learn how to become a gladiator at one of Rome's modern-day gladiator schools with a lesson that is not only historically accurate, but also a whole lot of fun.

Head along the ancient Appian Way to a school with its very own duelling arena. Start off in the adjoining Gladiator School of Rome Museum, where you get a little background on the history of gladiators, while getting close to authentic Roman artefacts, including swords, shields and armour.

Next, step into your traditional military tunic, belt and leather gloves, then grab your training sword and gather around as you're shown the techniques used in a sword battle – in complete safety. Your teacher is a member of the Historic Group of Rome.

Once you've mastered your technique and been put through the paces, you can even take part in an optional tournament with your fellow gladiator students, where a prize is given to the ultimate warrior. And if you don't feel up to the activity, you can choose to watch your friends or family from the viewing gallery free of charge.

The photos online are NOT what you will experience. They must be from an exhibition or taken for Twitter. The school started 45 minutes late, and our group spent over 1 hour of the 2 hour experience in the museum, which has zero English translation. You get a red tunic with a rope, no armour or anything fun. Then the group did 20 minutes of a short obstacle course that was basically jumping rope and a few pushups. Then for 15 minutes each person, one at a time, got a little sword practice with a grey platic bat. It was not even a sword. There was no gladiator to fight, the fighting was with another child, and no swordplay instruction was given. The man who ran our group was nice and informative and it was not his fault, the group that runs this place is responsible. I paid $200 for my child to have 15 minutes of pretend fighting with another child with a plastic bat. The other reviews must be fake or they must have very low standards. AVOID! My child was so upset.

Wonderful staff and experience. Our family loves our time at Rome gladiator school (we have 3 sons 14, 12 and 7). My wife and I really enjoyed too. A great family experience.

Awesome activity for kids. My 2 boys loved this experience. Class was informative and our “Gladiator Teacher” was very interactive with Botha kids and adults. Excellent learning experience. Highly recommend this activity.
