You are going to miss not having either a 21mm or 24mm lens along. Many of
the interiors need a good wide angle lens. Everything in and around Vatican
City is very photogenic. Fountains, columns, plazas, cathedrals (inside and
out), people, etc. I'm really not an expert on Rome. I have friends that
live just outside Rome and when visiting them, we usually spend some time
in that part of the city. I personally like photographing here. There are
lots of "foreground/background" scenes that work really well with wide
angle lenses.
