  • Sharpen your weapons and get to grips with gladiator life in the Ludus Hadriani, a faithful reconstruction of a real Gladiator school, complete with instructors in fencing combat!
  • Learn about the weapons used back in Roman times, try on gladiator clothing for size, and take pictures at the school's cool museum
  • Test your skills in a fight with different kinds of weapons, from wooden swords to the impressively heavy gladius, and get a medal to take home

Worried about that pesky tiger that keeps stalking you? Up your defenses and hit gladiator school. Throw yourself sword and shield first into the ancient art of gladiatorial combat here at Tivoli while you learn what life was really like for the gladiators.

Try on gladiator clothing (make sure your sandals are tight), wield some ancient wooden and steel weapons, and learn how to fight! Prove you did it with your own engraved medal. You'll be safe at all times, especially from pesky tigers.

very interesting experience. Hermes , the master , is very gentle and teached me a lot of things on gladiators. If you want to live as ancient Roman warrior for one day , you would like to join it !
