Good article Paris has been listed as one of the Geography and places good articles under the good article criteria. If you can improve it further, please do so. If it no longer meets these criteria, you can reassess it.

Eiffel Tower[edit]

I am wondering whether, given that the Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in Paris, the Eiffel Tower should receive its first reference sooner in the article than it currently does.Vorbee (talk) 14:29, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Much effort has been made here to make this article less of a tourist guide and more about 'the city as a city' (its origins, purpose, function): the Eiffel Tower is indeeed pretty, but doesn't play much of a role therein... n'est-ce pas? ; ) THEPROMENADER   06:04, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
I agree with user Vorbee!.--AlfaRocket (talk) 12:35, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

La Louvre[edit]

This article says that Paris is known for its museums, and goes on to name Louvre, but as this museum is frequently called "La Louvre" I am wondering whether it could benefit from the definite article (in French) going into its name. Vorbee (talk) 14:32, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Hello. First off, it is 'Le Louvre' in French, but English-Wikipedia policy is to use English whenever possible. THEPROMENADER   05:57, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Muslim population 1/4 that of Paris?[edit]

I came across the claim that Paris' Muslim population is 500,000 earlier today: that would be a little less than 1/4 the city population. There has to be a more objective source about city religiosity... I'll look into it later, but if anyone knows better now, please do improve the demographics' 'religion' section (that arguably should not be there if there if there is no census data on this? A move to the 'Culture' section?). Cheers.TP   08:10, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

Inserted good source (France3) to support the claim. Fram (talk) 08:51, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
