To be honest, I bought the 24-105L a few months ago when it was on sale, but have not use it much. I will definitely give it a good test before the trip. Would like to do some video as well, so the IS might come in handy.

I've been contemplating whether to take the 17-40L along or not.
The 17-40L was my first lens (bought for my 10D) and it has been my main 'walk-around' lens on APS-C bodies. With my 5DF3, I tend to use the 24-70 more, but still the 17-40L is an excellent addition for close quarters and when you need to take in the wide views.
Also, the size and weight is really nice  :)

So I ended up taking the 24-105 and 16-35 along for the trip. The weather was at times hot, so I was glad to keep it light.

A few pics taken during the trip:

Making a similar trip to Italy and France in October and my original plan was to take the 5D III and 2-3 lenses:
   
               
Option 1:   16-35L, 24-105L and 28-300L.  (Heavy)
   Option 2:   16-35L, 24-105L (light to med)
   Option 3:   16-35L, 28-300L (med-heavy)
   Option 4:   16-35L, Tamron 28-300 (light-med)

Any opinions out there????…especially those with experience with the new Tamron 28-300 FF lens on a 5D III (my purchase is still in the mail).

I plan to be taking typical tourist shots. I will also have my EOS M with kit & 22mm lens in my pocket :)
5D3, SL1, M1 and more lenses than I know what to do with! Been shooting w/Canon since 1985.

If taking all the heavy stuff plus EOS M I think you will be using the latter quite a lot. I would take the 24-105 plus the EOS M unless you are absolutely sure you will need longer reach. Enjoy the trip.
