This was my kids favourite part of Rome, they had so much fun (and so did my husband as he got proper involved) the gladiator training them was excellent and kind also making sure to involve the little one who was only 4 as well as challenging my older children ages 12 and 15.

'Titus' was amazing. It was a truly enjoyable experience, engaging and lighthearted while delivering a history lesson. Fantastic for kids, teenagers and adults. We enjoyed this attraction after spending a morning at the Vatican, it was a nice way to finish a big day.
