Best m4/3 second lens for trip to European cities?

I already have the  Oly 60mm f/2.8 which I need for macro slide digitization at home, and hopefully take along as a short tele on a trip to Rome. It's impressively sharp but maybe too long for urban photography (not "street," just urban ambience).

I would like to take only one other lens. I have just bought the Oly  EM10 black body (on order), so I have no other lenses.

I want to avoid changing lenses as much as I can so I would like to take only one other lens, which I hope will be very sharp.

And I want to avoid bulk and obtrusiveness.

I have thought of the Pan 20mm f/1.7 which would be good for photos indoors or at dusk or in the evening, but it doesn't zoom.

The Pan 12-32 zooms but is very slow for evening and night and indoor photos.

Which would  you advise?

Have I overlooked something?

Thanks for any advice.
