Vue is way easier to get started with. You don't even need ES6 syntax in most of the cases. The template is basically HTML with syntax sugar.

On the other hand, React heavily takes advantage of the new Javascript features. Without them, it would be a pain to use hooks. Writing HTML/JSX inside Javascript can be frightening for some people, but you can get used to it.

I've built the same application in both of them. It was an eye-opening experience that how similar they can be regarding the architecture of the application.
