For both children and adults, Gladiator School is a unique experience that is an out-of-the-ordinary activity while you're in Rome. But be prepared: it's not for the faint of heart. The warm-up itself is fairly taxing, and the gladiators play their roles well, not giving much mercy for giggling, talking or walking.
