I was in Venice a few weeks ago and while I did get some use out of my Canon 10-22mm(my most used lens for regular landscape shooting) 95% of what I shot could be handled by the 15-85mm, most of the 5% being of a couple of storms that came over.

I didnt do any shooting inside buildings but alot of them ban it anyway plus you need to consider the effects of distortion and keystoning. The latter is always going to very noticeble in a city and having to correct it in photoshop(or shooting level and cropping) is going to rob you of some of the extra width.

Besides that the main use for an UWA in Venice to me seems to be getting very up close and personal with your street shooting, personally I only did that with cats.
