The Gladiators Are Here! is the seventh episode of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.
The order of departure from Mount Lavinia Hotel are as follows:
Caroline & Jennifer have to travel to the Pantheon where they'll pick up an antique Olivetti typewriter. They then had to search for the building it resembles, the Altare della Patria which is known locally as "the Typewriter", before they are allowed to continue.
Choice A: Gladiator
Teams would have to dress up in ancient Roman costume and then learn a series of sword maneuvers to "battle" a seasoned gladiator, to receive their next clue. If teams strayed from the battle sequence they're taught, they have to start over.
Choice B: Charioteer
Teams would have to dress up in ancient Roman costume and then using a radio-controlled chariot, where one team member controls speed and the other controls direction. Once teams have completed five laps within one minute and thirty seconds, indicated by a "fire" going out, they will be given their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to count the steps of the Spanish Steps, not counting the sidewalk at the bottom, and then add the total to the Roman numerals on the Obelisco Sallustiano in front of the Trinità dei Monti, indicating its year of construction. They have to write down their answer in Roman numerals on the back of a postcard they got from a chestnut vendor. Once they have the right answer, MCMXXIV or 1,924, they can show it to a pair of impersonators, who are dressed to resemble Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, at the top of the Steps who will give them their next clue. If they were wrong, they have to go back down to the chestnut vendor to get a new postcard and try again.
