Surprisingly interesting talk about the history of the gladiators. Some of your preconceived notions will be blown away. The appetizers were poor, the wine was OK but scant. The show was fun, kids would enjoy it. They recommend Bus 118 to get there - fat...More

My friend and I were in Rome for 5 days and were looking for something to do other than bar-hopping. The actors are entertaining and the event itself is my fondest memory of our time in Rome.
