E500 2 lense kit and trip to Italy

I have the E500 with the two lenses that came in the kit. We are going to Italy next spring and I am considering a new lense, with the sales that are going on right now.

I was thinking that having a wider lense then the 14-45 that came with my kit might be helpful since buildings will be closer and large (in rome). So I was looking at the 12-60 or 11-22. My thinking was the 12-60 would basically replace my 14-45. I read some reviews that made me question this and whether the 11-22 would be better, but that would give me three lenses to carry.

Then I was considering that maybe I would need something with more reach like the 70-300 instead.

I have never been and may never go again so I do not want to get over there and wish I had something else. For those who have been or have experiance with these lenses which is better for my trip. Will I need more zoom or more width?

Thank you all.
