I'll say use the 50. Its the one you know and love ❤️
If it was me, I'd probably end up mounting my 20 1.8G and hardly take it off.
But i'd bring along either a 35mm or 50mm and my 70-200 f/4 in a nice shoulder messenger type bag.
That's probably how I'd roll.
I have the 24-85/2.8-4.0 (not 24-80) and it's my main lens for that focal length. you'll love it. Though get a used version and not new. They are an old design lens and may seem a bit clunky by comparison to a HIGH priced 24-70/2.8. But for the price they actually get a very high DxO rating above the 3rd market 24-70/2.8s probably primarily due to price.
I also have 50mm lenses but prefer the 24-85. I've actually been selling my primes because I just don't use them except for one 50/1.8 AF-D as I use that with closeup filters.
Just to make sure, you're talking about this lens ==> AF Zoom-NIKKOR 24-85mm f/2.8-4D IF from Nikon
The second photo looks more like Pisa than Roma.
I went to London with my 24-70 f/2.8G
on the second day, i ditched it and only used my 50mm f/1.4G
the Third Day...I only used a Lumix GM1
go with the lightest combination if you're going to be walking lots.
