Longest run is about 7m. 10mm tile skirting although walls are terrible and I was looking for an alternative, something bendy, that would probably be thinner. I really don't like tile skirting. No matter how tidy the gap between floor and bottom of skirting tile it never looks right to me.

I'd do a 6mm gap round edge, tiled skirting straight and fill top gap at top and let decorates sort wall. Leave a 2mm gap between bottom of skirting and floor tile and silicon

I'm in Italy, most porc. tiles have a skirting option with rounded over top. My problem is that it is a modest stone house and the walls are not just 'not straight' but literally curved. So to me at least a tiled skirting looks messy.

no skirting can look good

yes, but make sure it's a clean gap, no adhesive
