A great way to spend a couple of hours learning to fight like a gladiator in realistic arena surroundings. A little museum adds to the learning with friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. Book AM as it was very hot PM

Fantastic experience. The museum is great. Our trainer gave us an exceptional lecture about Roman way of fighting and the way Romans conquered their enemies. He could even handle our 7 year daughter, who wants to obey any rules. Highly recommended.

 My 16 year old son and husband had an amazing experience! My husband was not at all keen on doing this and I think he enjoyed it more than my son!!! The first hour is spent learning the different battle techniques the Gladiators used, then followed by teaching them to fight with swords. The man who leads the tour (can’t remember his name) was a wealth of information and was extremely accommodating as they were about 20 minutes late because IT IS HARD TO FIND!!!!  USE A TAXI!!! It’s off a dirt road near the ancient wall.  If you are in the main city or Trastevere – make sure to allow at least 30 minutes so you are not late. DO IT!!!

 Absolutely fantastic! A little hard to find, but well worth the search. Walk all the way down the alley and you will find it. My kids, and myself had a blast. The instructor is great with the kids.

If you are interested in the history of Roman Gladiators but not sure if you want to become a gladiator, you can just watch the goings on from the viewing platform free of charge.
