Europe

Come explore the European continent, a major player in world history—especially after the onset of colonialism. Between the 16th and 20th centuries, these powerful nations controlled much of the rest of the world, from the Americas to the African continent. Europe today is a treasury of fine art, living history, sumptuous palaces and castles, royal relics, and some of the tastiest cuisine imaginable. Many Americans come to Europe in search of their ancestral roots—another excellent reason to cross the pond for a visit.
