Gladiator Training School of Rome

A favourite of school groups is a trip to the gladiator training school where you can learn a number of techinques of defence and attack used by the gladiators of Rome. You will be taught by expert instructors trained in re-enactment of gladiatorial life. You will have the option to dress up in gladiatorial attire and hold and pratice with weapons which were used during the battles inside the colosseum and other gladiatorial venues. At the school you will visit the museum of gladiators to see the craftsmanship and history of the battles. A great day out with your school trip or for adults too!

Rome by Night Walking Tour

A three hour tour with your group would take you around many of the Ancient City monuments visiting Piazza Barberini, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain and finishing off at Campo de Fiori for a drink or a nice ice cream. Taking a guided tour as a group with your own private guide and headphones and should your group be extremely large you will have the chance to visit these magical sites by night, which has a different feel all lit up. Once you finally reach the end of the tour we can also organise for you to finish in a nice place for a later dinner or organize a pickup to be taken back to your hotels.

Rome Accommodation

We work with a number of accomodation providers and as our parters we manage to obtain great discounts for groups and schools that fit your requirements. For many of our school group clients, who work on a budget and cannot afford to accomodate their students in double / single rooms, we offer a solution with one of the best Hostels of Rome - Hostels Alessandro - situated close to the central station with all the amenities and is a perfect place to base yourselves for your school trip.

Rome Dining

Most hotels and our accomodation providers in Rome operate on a B&B basis only, although we can arrange accomodations that do offer full and half board. We also work in collaboration with a number of Restaurants in the city that can suit your groups taste should you wish to visit the Hard Rock Cafè, sample some of Rome's finest pizza or a visit to one of Rome's local Tratteria's to sample the real Roman dishes such as Bucatini alla Matriciana, Spaghetti alla Carbonara or Saltimbocca alla Romana.

We believe that we should offer this service to our groups as there are many tourist traps also here in Rome. In this way we can help you avoid these 'tourist traps' and with large groups most restaurants require advance bookings, so we can offer this for our clients and also gain you a discount along the way! An example of one of our partner's is Ristorante Aldo Ai Musei Vaticani which offers an excellect menu and is perfect for groups visiting the Vatican Museums on a morning tour and then to Aldo's for some delicious lunch.


We organize transfers to and from the major airports of Fiumicino and Ciampino whether you need a private car, minivan or a coach, we have all the solutions and experience of catering for transfers and sightseeing tours in buses for up to 600 people. Our solutions offer the most competitive prices, and not just from the airports as we can also arrange pickups from Civitavecchia port or railway stations. So don't hesitate to get in contact with us for a quote for your group.
