My boys, ages 10 and 13 loved this! Very educational as well as fun

My boys really enjoyed doing this! They learned a lot about the history of the Roman army, why they were so successful and learned a lot about Gladiators! Fun and interactive. Great organization so glad we came!

Fantastic way to see the catacombs and aqueduct

This tour was run very well. The equipment used is very good. The logistics of the tour were very good. The price was well worth the tour which included the bike rental, catacombs guided tour, lunch and a bike tour guide that gave us a good overview of the history. There was some riding in the city with the traffic, but I felt safe with our guide - Alessandro - at all times. I definitely would recommend, and may even do again when I come back to Rome with my family.

Exceptional with a passionate and knowledgeable guide

This was a tour I would highly recommend. Our guide was superb and she showed us some of Rome and it’s ruins outside of the ancient city, the catacombs and the Appian way.

Wonderful for younger and older children

Our two boys had a fantastic experience at Gladiator School. Our oldest (just 12) is a Roman history buff, and our younger son is just starting to learn. They were equally engaged - Roman history was enhanced by handling of weapons and armor. After this, they went into a small training area where the instructor got their blood pumping with training exercises. Then, they went into an amphitheater and learned sword fighting techniques that were then used for individual battles. It was absolutely fantastic - a highlight of the trip.
