Gladiators School

The tour begins with the most exciting story of Rome: the Gladiators. During the two hours of lesson, the instructor gladiator will teach you how to fight with accurate replicas of the weapons used by the gladiators of ancient Rome. The lessons are organized and held by the members of Gruppo Storico Romano (Roman Historic Group), specialized in Roman age historical re-enactments and gladiator fights. It is a unique, unmissable opportunity to become a gladiator and relive the history of Rome.

You will be given a traditional gladiator tunic, the belt, protective leather gloves and the rudis (a wooden sword for practicing). You will be able to unleash your imagination and be Spartacus for a day, fighting against roaring lions and sword warriors! Once you have learnt the basic sword fighting techniques you will have the possibility to participate in a Gladiator Tournament with a prize offered for the winner. Every participant will receive a certificate of participation. If you are fascinated by Roman gladiators, but you do not feel like trying to fight, you can still watch your friends or relatives fight. A spectacular tribune is available for watching. Are you ready to accept the challenge? This authentic Roman experience melts culture, sports and ancient myths!

The Ancient City (Appia Antica)

Appia Antica is considered the most known and celebrated among the roads built under the Roman empire. For this very reason it has been named “Regina Viarum”, which means “Queen of the Roads”. When it was built in 312 BC from Consul Appius Claudius it had to represent a symbol of the greatness of Rome. Today, moving along Appia Antica is like reading an open book about the history of Rome through very important monuments that have recently brought to the institution of the Regional Park.Percorso: Pantheon Largo Argentina Piazza Venezia Chiesa Santa Maria Monti Circo Massimo Terme Di caracalla Appia Antica.
