What's the difference? -> "the place where I visited" VS "the place which I visited" In the view of the grammar lesson which I learned, the verb 'visit' in the former should be intransitive, while the other one is transitive, because 'where' is an adverb when 'which' is a pronoun. But this much is all I could come up with... any help?

Visit is usually transitive, but it can be intransitive in rare and literary contexts. For your purposes, just avoid using it. Stick to "The place that I visited" or "The place which I visited" or even just "The place I visited." Just to clarify Transitive: I visit him from time to time. Intransitive: I visit from time to time. (this is honestly pretty natural) Here is an example of a somewhat natural sentence with where: "I went into the house, where I visited often in the evenings."
