I run 700c x 32 for touring and carry a 700c x 30 Scwalbe folding tire for an extra. I run max pressure but you can let the pressure down and get a smoother ride. I have never had a flat caused by puncture. If I was doing nothing but road and an occasional gravel trail I might go with 28's.
In my experience you will need to have at least three tire irons (thin type, not "quick sticks")or you will never get a new one on the rim. They're tough tires.
