Experience description

The gladiators of Ancient Rome had it tough. Often slaves or disgraced soldiers, they were forced to fight to the death in huge arenas such as the mighty Coliseum, either against each other, or wild animals. If they survived, they had a chance of glory, but even then they knew that further battles awaited and each could be their last. Those that lived were the best fighters, well-trained in armed and hand-to-hand combat, and this exciting lesson at Gladiator School gives you expert tuition in using authentic weapons, in a safe and friendly environment.

Your Rome gift experience begins with a visit to the compact Gladiator museum where you’ll discover true stories of life as a warrior in Ancient Rome, the hardships they endured and the types of combat they engaged in, as well as epic battles that took place on major events. Then, wearing a special tunic, you’ll try out various Roman weapons and learn the art of swordplay, imagining yourself as a fearsome gladiator out to earn the praise of the Emperor!
