Europe, in particular, ancient Greece, was the birthplace of Western civilization. The fall of the Western Roman Empire marked the end of ancient history and the beginning of the Middle Ages. Renaissance humanism, exploration, art, and science led to the modern era. From the Age of Discovery onwards, Europe played a predominant role in global affairs.

As the home of Western civilization, Europe’s major cities have some of the most famous museums in the world.
