Camera Gear Question for Trip to Munich, Venice & Croatia - Nikon D800E w/Trinity or Sony DSC-RX1r


I am having trouble trying to decide what to bring on our 2 week trip to Munich, Venice and Croatia this coming week.  I have a 36MP Nikon D800E with an assortment of prime and superwide lenses.  You can see what I have in my profile.  However, the setup is extremely bulky and heavy.  On the other hand I also have a Sony 24MP RX1r 35mm prime fixed lens camera that is extremely portable and does take fantastic shots.  I have a high performance 256GB San Disk card that is more than enough for use for storing photos and my Razer Blade 2019 laptop with 2TB of storage.

My question is if I go portable and just take the Sony would this be enough or would there be any insane benefit of bringing the Nikon and a few lenses?

We will be walking, biking and taking a cruise toward the end of the trip.  I know the Nikon and my lenses are fantastic quality but so is the Sony but never took the Sony on a major trip like this and wanted to get some of your feedback and views on what you all would do.  We primarily share photos through Apple and I archive original RAW files on my Synology NAS.

Thank you for your feedback.
