The Italian government, responding to tourist complaints, has cracked down on gladiators.
Now the men and women who make their living by dressing as gladiators and centurions at the Colosseum were demonstrating Thursday.
The costumed gladiators and centurions charge tourists to have their pictures taken in front of the Colosseum...and can get abusive if they don't get enough.
A city council regulation banned them from the Colosseum and from asking for money for photos.
Police say they make almost $300 a day and never pay taxes.
The centurions can still work in other places in Rome - so you've been warned.
