I work as a software developer in a part of the world that has a lot of road / traffic noise. I live in Europe and want to move countries, to somewhere quieter. Due to my job, it would have to be near a city (most likely) to get a job, but I want to move to the quietest place possible. After some research, I've noticed that several European cities have introduced 'car bans', but they don't apply to motorcycles (these create a lot more noise) and only apply to specific areas usually.
So what are the options, what European locations fit these requirements?
Further info: I would prefer western Europe location suggestions from the Scandinavian / Nordic regions, to as far down as Switzerland / Italy.
