Itinerary

Your gladiator lesson takes place at the Gladiator School of Rome, located near the Colosseum on the historic Appian Way. Specializing in the reenactment 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.

A fun afternoon for my son who had the chance to learn about Roman history and try his hand at a gladiator experience!

We signed up our four girls (5, 9, 9 and 11) for this experience. They were in a group with just two other young kids (in the 8-10 range). They LOVED it and rated it as one of their favorite things we did in Rome. The instructor was good humored. He was a big guy and made jokes about the kids needing to keep in line. He provided good history upfront and demonstrated some fighting moves. The actual training wasn't as fun as some of the videos I saw with flying arms you had to duck under, but it was still great. They had a few circuits they had to run through over balance beams and through swinging ropes. They caught swords out of the air and learned about 4 different fighting moves. Then, they each had the opportunity to fight in a ring and get scored. The instructor was nice enough to let our 5 year old win. I think of this experience really for children, but for them, it was a nice glance into gladiator life that really complimented seeing the coliseum and learning roman history on the rest of the trip. Taxis in Rome are cheap and this place was tough to turn into. I might just do a taxi if I did it again, but we didn't have any problem parking at the place. Definitely don't plan to walk on that road. It is skinny and dangerous.

We had a great time! My son absolutely loved it! Our instructor was great. He gave a lot of the historical background of gladiator fights as well as Roman military history.

If you’re traveling Italy with kids, this is a must. A great break from the museums. The staff was great, so entertaining and inclusive of everyone. We all had a great time, but our 2 boys had the best time

Our boys ages 7 and 9 loved this experience. It was nice as parents to sit and watch. A perfect combination of history and hands on training and battles.

We went directly to the store and bought him a training sword and he slashed his way through Rome. He spent the rest of the time in Italy trying to talk me into buying him a Gladiator helmet. Rome was just not ready for Gladiator Chase.
