Pentax 67 wide lens for traveling

Hi Im thinking to purchase Pentax 67 wide lens for city and landscape while I'll travel around other country.

I was thinking to choose 45mm but this lens seem to be too wide for cityscape.

45, 55, 75, and etc would be my choices... Which one should I get it for traveling photography?

I'd go with either the 45 or 55mm. The 75 is close to a "normal" lens.

Here is one using the Super Takumar 1:3.5 /55 mm (posted before here I think)
It is on a Speed Graphic with an RH8, so a little bit wider frame than the P67.
Fuji 400H and PrimeFilm120Pro
It is quite a monster with its rectangular metal hood ( needed to protect the 105mm front glass) and I would be reluctant to walk around populated city streets with it.

Pretty much any 6x7 medium format lens you multiply by 0.56 and you'll get the diagonal 35mm (rough) equivalent.
i.e. 45mm x 0.56 = 25.2mm (round down to 24mm)

The 45/4 is about as compact (sans hood) as 6x7 lenses get. I like mine.
