Gladiators are a fascinating aspect of the ancient Roman empire and have inspired countless books and movies.

Our Gladiator Training Workshop is your chance to become a heroic fighter for a couple of hours. During this highly entertaining activity for the whole family, you will discover the true world of the ancient roman gladiators and what these public combats were all about.

First, your private teacher will tell you all about the Gladiators: their lives, their condition, and of course, their equipment. You will be able to hold the swords, nets, helmets and tridents that these courageous fighters would carry into the arena.

You will then have a fun-packed training session with your private teacher. You will learn all the moves, and understand the winning techniques that would save your lives if you would have been a real gladiator.

Finally, you will also be taught the art of archery, since this was also something that the Gladiators would do. All this is a magnificent place just outside of Rome. A fun experience for everyone in your family.
