Going to Italy/France with 3 years old boy - 5D3 or GX1?

Planning to get either
1. 5D3 + 35 f/1.4L + 17-40 f/1.4L + Gitzo 1541T, or
2. GX1 + 20 f/1.7 + 14mm and wide converter (effectively 35mm equilvant 22 mm f/2.5) + Small Spider Tripod 
My concerns:
- Safety problem, FF DSLR + Gitzo + L glass on neck would; a good target?
- Weight problem, kid+stroller+Tripod + DSLR, sounds too heavy for a relaxing trip?
on the other hand, 5D3 offers me
- super wide 17-40 zoom (don't want to invest anymore into m43 to get 7-14)
- better noise performance
- better operation/control, especially OVF

Any idea?
Thanks!
