Wide angle lens for Rome trip.

I will soon be travelling to Rome with my 60D and based on what I have been reading I am tempted to add a wide angle lens to my arsenal. I currently have the 24-105L and Sigma 30mm F1.4 for low light and shallow DOF.

From what I am reading and although I am more then happy with my 24-105 on a cropped sensor for every day stuff, I am starting to think that maybe for Rome (architecture and narrow streets) I could find myself wishing I hade wider.

While this is a bit of a luxury for a short term trip I don't want to miss the shots as I don't go to Rome every week!

The contenders are:

Sigma 10-20 F3.5
Sigma 10-20 F4.0-F5.6
Tamron 12-24
Tokina 12-24
Canon 10-22

I could of course rent one of the above just for the trip.
