If your stomach turns at the thought of slushy, romantic photo opportunities, then the Love Wall in Montmartre may not be for you. The wall is the brainchild of Frederic Baron, who began collecting I love yous in 1992 before teaming up with artist and calligrapher Claire Kito who drew the mural. An iconic Parisian attraction that can also be visited for free.

5-Visit the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Parisparis

The most popular attractions Paris. I’m sure that you heard this cathedral. The spindly gothic buttresses and magnificent stained glass windows make it as much a treat to see from the inside as out.

It is the most visited cemetery in the world, thanks to its impressive roll call of those laid to rest here, including Georges Rodenbach, whose tomb features a bronze figure breaking out of the grave, and Oscar Wilde’s, which used to be kissed by visitors with red lipstick. Jim Morrison of The Doors is also buried there; his grave is a humble stone marker that draws thousands of fans each year.

While a visit to the Pompidou Centre‘s main museum and exhibitions will cost you at least €10, the studio of Constantin Brancusi, in the same square, is free to visit. The revolutionary sculptor, who died in 1957, left his workshop and all its contents to the state and the Pompidou Centre had the studio taken apart and reconstructed in front of it in a modern pavilion. Visitors can get an impression of the space in which Brancusi worked, as well as see some of the work that helped redefine modern sculpture.
