Which lens do you use most where you are?

Then take that one with you some place else.

Obviously it's the lens you feel most comfortable with.

But when I travel I go wide, so I would recommend something along the lines of a 9-18mm or the kit 12-50 if you happen to have an EM-5.


But what jumper should I take to Florence?

Neither of lenses from OP. Or, either or both of them as an addition to wider lens. 20mm can't be the main lens in Florence. Over there I struggled with compact that had 24mm equiv. wide end. One would need 9-18mm or 7-14mm in Florence.

For example, this one was at taken in Florence at 24mm equivalent FL and I could not move back any further. It would be similar in many European cities.
