16-35mm f4 and Tamron 28-75 should be great setup, Rokinon 35mm 1.4 if take evening photos hand-held.

I went to exact the same cities (except wine tour) a few years ago with A7r, 5D III, EF 24-70L/2.8 II, EF 70-200L/4.0 IS, FE 35/2.8 ZA and FE 55/1.8 ZA then. Carried two sets in daytime then returned hotels, left 5D III there and only carried A7r with tripod for evening photos.

Love all these three cities, very romantic

Personally I will still carry two cameras as it's a hassle for me to swap lenses. Now FE 16-35 GM (or EF 24-70L/2.8 II, one of them) on A7r III, FE 70-200G (or Batis 135 for lighter/smaller option) on A7r II (or A9), FE 55, Canon 17L TS-E swap in when needed.

After these months now I consolidate into two cameras - A7r III and A9.

Travel lens setup - FE 16-35 GM, Tamron FE 28-75, Batis 135. Collected bunch of prime lenses that need to carefully select a few to complement zoom for each trip - CV 12/5.6, Loxia 21, Loxia 35, FE 55/1.8 ZA (possess long ago), Loxia 85, may add the newly announced e-mount CV 50/1.2 by this year. In some trips will also carry FE 100-400 GM or FE 70-200 G (or GM).
