Where in the world

Rome, Italy

Bring Roman history to life for you and your kids and enrol in gladiator school. Dressed in traditional tunic step into the arena for your moment of glory. Join our English-speaking guide for the action-packed two-hour lesson.

Step into the sandals of a gladiator and together you can re-enact life during Roman times. Your session includes a brief introduction before you’re issued with traditional tunic, belt and wooden sword before proceeding to learn the basic skills of sword fighting.  Feel like Russel Crowe in Gladiator as you wield your weapon in defiance before facing your enemy.

Don’t forget to pose for pictures as you enter the arena for your first round of combat. After you have mastered the techniques try on a variety of the heavier armour which could weigh you down. Your day ends with an exciting gladiatorial tournament with the winner receiving a special prize and all the runners-up getting a certificate.

Additional notes about the tour

Gladiator school is an ideal experience for families. A driver will take you to the venue and you will be accompanied by a guide.

This experience is only available to book as part of an A&K tailor-made holiday.
