Considering the fact that Spartan boys began training in military barracks at age 7, and their full time occupation was generally as a soldier, I would chose to live in Athens.  Most city-states were often at war, making no place safe and gentle.  Athens though, only required 2 years of military service at age 18.  The rest of a persons time was spent in economic ventures.  I wouldn't want to live in a place where the men's predominant undertaking was fighting.
