I went to Italy 2yrs ago, Lake Garda. It was my first trip with a dslr, so, like you, i was unsure what to take. I took my 600D/T3i + 3 lenses. 10-20, 18-55 + 55-250. I got some decent shots, but 80% or so were taken @ 100mm or less. It was also a pain constantly changing lenses.

My experience is that if you want to capture what your kit allows you can't avoid multiple lens changes. I once thought 10-20 + 18-200 would make life simple: not at all, because the reason I bought the 10-20 in the first place was for significantly greater coverage than the ordinary 18mm.

So any time I wanted a wide view (of a street or landscape, say) I needed the UWA; but 20 was much too wide for anything else. I couldn't avoid the pain of changing lenses, so I've learned to live with it. And once you have to change it doesn't make much difference if you have two or three lenses with you.
