The historic French province of Champagne is located 160 kilometers east of Paris and has a long-standing tradition of viticulture dating from the first century. Indeed, there is no other place in the world to legally name a drink "champagne." Cavernous chalk tunnels stretch for kilometers under the modern cities of Reims and Epernay and are used as cellars for millions of bottles of the precious drink. Next door, the small, scenic European nation of Luxembourg is home to some of the leading European Union (EU) institutions. The European Investment Bank, Court of Justice, General Court and the Court of Auditors are located here as are many of the departments of the European Commission.
