Visit: Gladiator School of Rome, Via Appia Antica 18, 00179 Rome Italy
When in Rome, do as the Romans did and watch a gladiator fight in the heart of the ancient city. Taking place in the Gruppo Storico Romano, close to the Colosseum, you’ll watch a recreated gladiator fight minus the gory bits, and enjoy food made from ancient Roman recipes. Watch fights, ancient dances, and rituals of the Vestal Virgins, and even pose for photos in gladiator armor. The experience also includes entry to the Museum of the Roman Legionary with a drink before the fun starts.
