Another reason why Athens would be a better place to live than Sparta is because of their government. Athens' government is democratic with all free citizens capable of voting or holding a government position. This is better than Sparta's government because Sparta has an oligarchy with only two kings that make all the decisions without anyone's say.
Another reason that Ancient Athens would have been a better place to live is because of the military. The Athens military was primarily based on the navy. They send people off to train at 18 instead of 7 like the Spartans. The military protected the Athenian way of life.

One reason why I think that Athens would've been a better place to live is because of their education. The boys in Athens do not have any formal education, but they do pick up a trade from their fathers. They
are
taught gymnastics and wrestling though. This is better than Sparta because they are not taught anything except how to fight.

Conclusion
In Athens, woman did not have an education or any rights. However in Sparta, they had a lot of rights, could own property, and could get divorced.
Sparta didn't have any skill with arts, like Athens. They were taught to fight and defend their property while their husbands were away at war.

These are all the city- states that have allied with Athens or are where Athens live.

These are all reasons why I think Athens would've been a better place to live than Sparta. Athens has more arts and education, and has more freedom for men.
