We were so excited for this experience based on all the amazing reviews we'd read here. While I do think it was the potential to be an incredible experience, it fell quite short for our family because it was SO over crowded. There were at least 30 participants in the session and only one instructor. The museam tour was way too crowded and many people just skipped it and stood outside because they couldn't hear or see anything because of the size of the group. The adult partcipants didn't even get to do the first part of the class the warm ups and drills despite paying the same price as the kids. Then during the instruction it was kind of a free for all. At the end, each participant got to do a quick 1x1 battle with another participant usually siblings and at that point they finally had the attention of the instructor and really got to learn some things. A big dissapointment considering how much the experience costs and how excited we were about doing it.
We had a great time. My two pre-teen boys and I took the class and had a lot of fun. This was the perfect thing for the kids in between site seeing and museums. The first part of the school was very informative and then the interactive part was fun and informative as well. It is a little pricey but worth in in the end.
A history lesson and a great work out all in one! We learned about the history of gladiators in ancient Rome, got to see and handle the weapons and armor, and then spent an hour training like real gladiators including sparring with wooden gladius swords. Overall a lot of fun!
One FYI - if you are in central Rome you'll need to take a taxi to the school, and the school will call a taxi to take you back to Rome.
My 6 year old son says this tour was the highlight of his entire trip! The historical background was interesting, and the training was great. It was really fun for the whole family, but I would caution that some of the content/language sexual innuendo was a little inappropriate for kids under 10. We did not let it get in the way of our fun, and I think most of it went over the kids' heads, but it is worth noting. Also, take bug spray!! This was the only place in Rome where we received many bug bites.
It was fun. We did learn a lot about roman soldiers and gladiators fighting technics. As for the physical training part of the tour, it was ridiculous in a way, but great if you have kids. Otherwise, book this without any expectation in mind but just a couple of hours of fun away from the usual tourists attractions. The teacher looked like a real gladiator by the way. It was a MMA fighter and played roles on movies and TV shows.
