Tour Description​

Gladiator For a Day! Make your kids’ dream come true.

On this special family experience you’ll visit not only the Colosseum with a kid-friendly expert guide, but also the official Gladiator School of Rome on the ancient Appian Way.

We designed this half-day tour with the aim of giving you and your kids a different perspective on Ancient Rome history, combining an informative tour of the Colosseum with an engaging workout. The best way for the whole family to put things in contest…while having great fun!

Infact, before teaching you how to fight like a real Gladiator, your local instructor will guide you through the Gladiator Museum, where you’ll learn everything there is to know about private and public life of the best Roman fighters. You'll also get an opportunity to wear Gladiator's helmets and uniforms.

The training camp will then open its doors for you to have a real Gladiator workout session and try the best fighting techniques of the Roman warriors.

Toy swords and shields will be at your disposal to get properly trained for the final combat!

Who will be the last hero on the Arena?
