Full description
On a 2-hour tour of the archeological site of ancient Capua you’ll visit the Roman amphitheater of Spartacus, the Gladiator Museum, and Santa Maria Capua Vetere, the temple dedicated to the god Mitra. Capua was the birthplace of the gladiator revolt led by Spartacus against the Roman Empire, which arose due to the inhumane conditions the gladiators suffered. The battle ended with the complete defeat of the rebels and Spartacus met his death on the field. Thousands were crucified by Crassus along the Appian Way, a road built by Appius Claudius in 312 B.C. to connect Rome with Capua. Visitor the Gladiator Museum with your guide. See the Temple of Santa Maria Capua Vetere, dedicated to the god Mitra. The cult of Mitras is of Persian origin, and was almost certainly brought to Rome by the prisoners of war who later became gladiators. Please note that the amphitheater is closed on Mondays.

What to say about this private tour, other than how amazing it was! It was just the two of us on this tour with Michele of Askos Tours, which allowed for an even more immersive experience, and Michele's knowledge of old Capua, the Gladiators, and the gladiatorial games was incredible. The day of the tour was incredibly warm (39 degrees Celsius) but Michele made sure to stop in the shade when explaining things so that we weren't exposed to the extreme heat at all times. Unfortunately the Mithraeum was closed due to restoration works but we were instead taken on a tour of the Archaeological Museum of Capua which was also incredibly fascinating. I highly recommend this tour, especially if it's just a small group; very informative with a lot of history to take in!

A first hand experience of a lifetime into the world of gladiators. This was my absolute highlight of our family holiday. Our tour guide, Michele, was prompt, very knowledgeable and offered many stories to highlight the tour. He made the tour pleasant and enjoyable. We were the only people there. This is a gem for Roman history so please do yourself a favor and “GO!” You won’t regret it.
