Eiffel Tower - French Tips for your Next trip To Paris

Eiffel is the French-German movie you want to watch for this summer. You have probably already seen all the new seasons of LUPIN comme moi (like me), et maintenant, il est temps d’aller se promener à Paris avec Monsieur Gustav Eiffel. (and now it’s time to stroll in Paris with Mr Gustave Eiffel). Everything will change when Eiffel crosses paths with a mysterious woman.

Great news as France reopened June 9th to all American Vaccinated! OUH LA LA!

This movie might give you the boost you needed to plan your next trip to Paris. And I am here for you if you need to brush up on your French language (for classes: email me at: valeriefrenchteacher@gmail.com)


Now my traveling tip to you : I highly recommend you to do the same:

  • Go to the top of it, visit the Champagne Bar, make a wish and then please pay a visit to Mr Eiffel, his daughter and Mr Edison at the mini-wax museum on the Eiffel Tower.

  • Or enjoy a Bateaux Mouches dîner and marvel at the Eiffel Tower at night with its lightning show!

I know (je sais!), I always have the best tip for my amazing students!


Storyline: The government is asking Eiffel to design something spectacular for the 1889 Paris World Fair, but Eiffel simply wants to design the subway. Suddenly, everything changes when Eiffel crosses paths with a mysterious woman from his past.


This movie captures not only a wonderful engineering feat, but also the thrilling life and times of the Eiffel Tower's creator. A man who was unrelenting in his desire to create a legacy, regardless of the pressure on him.

Eiffel is a movie directed by Martin Bourboulon with Romain Duris (J’adore!) and Emma Mackey.

Romain Duris is best known for his role in Cédric Klapisch's Spanish Apartment trilogy, which consists of L'Auberge Espagnole, Russian Dolls, and Chinese Puzzle. And I had the privilege to work with the decor team (Lazennec Production) on Cedric Klapisch's first movie when I was a student with Fabrice Luchini “Riens du Tout”.

Emma Mackey, vous la connaissez toute! She stars as Maeve Wiley in the Netflix comedy-drama series Sex Education, which is her debut role.





Now, get this book if you are planning your next trip to Paris; AN AMERICAN IN PARIS.

It’s the perfect gift for yourself or a friend. I am very excited to recommend this new book to you by my student Lynda Vaughn.

It is full of fantastic tips and guidance for adult travelers (singles, couples, and small groups) who want to discover the magic of Paris without it’s burden. “It is geared to those with a mid-range budget, willing and able to splurge in certain areas but also looking for good value” as the author Lynda Vaughn explains.
