I am looking for a captivating/exhilarating atmosphere (in terms of architecture, ambiance, culture, history and most important: food !), but something not stressful or "oppressive" (too many people, too much crazyness)
Basically, I am looking for a place to dream and get peace after 1 crazy year without holidays :-)
What would you recommend: Florence or Venice?
Your opinion would be much appreciated.
