    What to Expect
    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.

    We went Sunday and had a great time. The organisers where very friendly and obviously love doing their roles. Great for the price and great bits of role play with swords. Well worth doing if you like Gladiators and roman history.

    There was no pre drinks and food was just some bread so make sure you eat before going because after the show you have to wait around for them to organise a taxi for you as the venue is out of the way!
