In Rome, it will be nice to use a fisheye for the drawings on the ceilings. In smaller towns as well as other cities, 24-70 n 70-200mm are more than enough.
I brought an ultra wide lens too but find the subjects too small when u use it.
U may need to use f/2.8 and high ISO quite often for shots in the churches as the sky may get dark early during winter
