I have experience with three Romance languages. I had studied Spanish two years before I started with French. Obviously Spanish helped me a lot with my French studies. Some of the classmates who knew French had the same feelings when learning Spanish. "Oh, it's similar to..." When I learned Portuguese ~15 years later, my knowledge of Spanish helped me again.

However, I didn't start learning Spanish with any Romance languages in mind, nor did I choose it in the first place because it somehow was "better" (even "easier"). I just chose Spanish because that was a language I wanted to know at that time.

Sometimes I want to learn a pair Italian and French ) I
often read and it seems to me that they are closer to each other than for example French to Spanish or
French to Portuguese

Well, as far as didn't choose yet. I decided to continue going thru Michel Thomas, Paul Noble, and Pimsleur
until I either decide what one language to focus on or finish all of them for all three languages)
