Very well documented history of the workings below the city of Paris.
However you do need a strong stomach when you venture further into the tunnel.
Bring a scented handkerchief.

The Paris Pass including Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus is Awesome and I highly recommend the combo. The Paris Pass includes over 60 attractions. Head Sets are provided on the bus with multiple language selections for interpretation. It's beautiful to ride on top in the open air. Be prepared to walk a lot even with the Bus Pass and wear the most comfortable shoes you can find! I booked through Viator and the location to redeem the booking voucher (74 Rue de Clery, 75002) in central Paris is difficult to find, and their hours for pick-up on Saturday and Sunday are only 10:00 am till 1:00 pm. Thank goodness we took a taxi right to the door. I was shocked at the pick up location, but all went well.

Passage des Panoramas are the oldest covered passages in Paris. Great place on a rainy day for shopping and eating. You will find here old fashion gallery, small restaurant, antic shop, second hand fashion stores and lots of fun. Check out all the passages around the area.

Seek out these covered shopping areas, an innovation in the early 19th Century. Decide which one is your favorite. They range from ritzy and beautiful to slightly seedy to just plain functional. I love then all and keep returning.

Don't visit them before 10h or 10:30 a.m. because you'll find almost all stores closed.
Visiting this covered passages is almost visiting Paris back in a day.
Each Passage has it's kind of stores, for example, there is a Passage that has more stores of stamps and collectibles, in other you'll find more stores of toys, other is more dedicated to printed art so you'll find serigraphs, posters and paintings. Since you're able to walk from one to another just by crossing one street (not all but some of them) I'd recommend you to just take a walk along them, it is very interesting.
Each one has it's own characteristics, don't miss the details. The floors with patterns, the ceilings in worked iron and glass as well as others details reveal the soul of this city that somehow is being lost in time.
In almost all of them there's restaurants and/or bistros where you can take a meal, some more modernised but others untouched.
It is also a good thing to do in a rainy day and free.
