Stucco vs Vinyl Siding

I have a 71 year-old home that has aluminum siding
covering its original stucco exterior. The siding will
probably need to be replaced in the next year or two.
I would like to return the exterior to stucco for
aesthetic reasons. I would appreciate anyone's comments
about the pros and cons of both (stucco vs vinyl).
Some notes: I have blown fiberglass insulation into
most of the voids in my exterior walls - is that a
problem for stucco? Also, if I installed vinyl siding
I would also add Tyvek housewrap.
