With this tour comes a two-hour lesson where your gladiator instructor will teach you how to fight with authentic weapons used by the gladiators of ancient Rome. Lessons are organized and led by members of the Historic Group of Rome who specialize in the re-enactment of Roman life and gladiatorial combat.
Don't miss this opportunity to re-create Roman history and life as a gladiator. Dressed in a traditional gladiator tunic, belt, leather protective glove and rudis (training sword), you can let your imagination run wild as you play like Spartacus for a day, fighting off ferocious lions and sword-wielding warriors!
Next, learn the basic techniques of gladiatorial sword fighting and take part in an optional gladiatorial tournament, with the winner receiving a victory prize. All participants receive a certificate of accomplishment.
If you're fascinated by Roman Gladiators but are not sure if you're up for this lesson, you can choose to watch friends or family free of charge. There's a great viewing platform in here. Try this Roman experience combining culture, sport and ancient legends, and ensure for yourself fun time in Rome!
