I'm planning a trip to Sesto Fiorentino, Italy in the spring with my family and hope to take lots of pictures with my D7000. I currently have Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5, Nikon 105mm macro, and Nikon 70-300mm VR II lenses in my bag.

I expect to be shooting everything from people to landscapes and don't want to carry around all that glass.

I'm considering picking up a used intermediate zoom such as the Nikon 28-80mm f/3.3-5.6G or Nikon 15-105mm.

I see that Ken Rockwell prefers the Nikon 18-200 VR, but it's a little pricey. Don't want to spend more than about $300 as the airplane tickets alone are through the roof right now.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

The 18-105 is a very good lens and it covers your requirement for scenics to people pictures very well - a really useful range of focal lengths.
