Become A Gladiator




Learn the secrets of the gladiators, their fighting skills and weapons during a private 2 hour hands-on gladiator training workshop animated by a passionate historian.



Do you think you know everything about gladiators?

Gladiators are a fascinating aspect of the ancient Roman empire and have inspired countless books and movies. Going to Rome without immersing yourselves in the world of these fearless warriors would be a pity.

Become A Gladiator is a fun filled gladiator training workshop and your chance to become a heroic fighter for a couple of hours. During this highly entertaining activity, let your family discover the true world of the ancient roman gladiators and what these public, entertainment combats were all about.

First, listen to your private instructor as he tells you all about gladiators: their lives, their art, and of course, their equipment and weapons. You will be able to hold the swords, lets, helmets and tridents that these courageous fighters would carry into the arena.

The most entertaining part for each member of your family, parents and children, boys and girls, is the engaging training session with your private teacher. You will learn all the moves, and understand the winning techniques that would have saved your lives if you would have been fighting in the arena. With fake swords and shields, just pretend to be in the Colosseum yourself.

Another part of the training is to master the art of archery, since this was also something that the Gladiators would do. Needless to say that all the necessary safety measures are followed, and there are not one to one combats.

Become A Gladiator takes place in a magnificent place just outside of Rome and is the perfect place for an unforgettable family-bonding experience!
