So how much of the filming was done with a GoPro? (I recognized the signature 'curved verticals' on many of the shots.) Which model?

Quite a bit was done with it. Many are of the same scenes interspersed with the AX-100. If you use the "linear" setting, there is no distortion. I have the latest model - the Hero 5. The footage was shot at 2.7 K. Only complaint I had was that the sound on the GoPro is poor and really bad about allowing background audio drown out the primary source.

I'm thinking about getting this model, especially now that it has an accessory 'stabilizing' handle available. I bought, and still have, the original GoPro -- but it had too many limitations to really make much use of it -- but this model seems to be very much better.

The quality of the images was good, although it doesn't seem to handle low light so well.

The Rome/Pompeii trip (along with Herculaneum) is something that I intend taking sometime in the next few years. Did you organize the sight-seeing before you left home, or when you arrived?

The whole tour was a guided tour. I did very little on my own. Since our hotel was just down the block from the Coliseum, I did go there on my own before the whole group went the next day. If you don't go on a organized tour, be sure you go on line before you arrive and arrange for your tickets. Otherwise, there is a long line to purchase them, and I'm not sure that you can get the main floor entrance on site like you can with a prepurchased ticket.
