If your stomach turns at the thought of slushy, romantic photo opportunities, then the Love Wall in Montmartre may not be for you. Still, Paris being the city of love, it’s no surprise that this mural that features “I Love You” scrawled in hundreds of different languages, draws countless visitors looking for an opportunity to capture a smoochy holiday snap. 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. It’s not far from the gleaming white Sacré-Coeur Basilica, an iconic Parisian attraction that can also be visited for free.
