Take the "Sewers of Paris" tour;  take a cooking class; grab an umbrella & walk around the Père Lachaise Cemetery (great ambience on a rainy day); sip a glass of wine (or two) in a cafe; find some smaller museums to explore; the Gallerie LaFayette (near the Opera Garnier) is an eye-opener (look up).

Have multiple drinks in the Bar Hemingway (Ritz Hotel). Then go to dinner at Relais de l'Entrecôte Saint Germain in St Germain.

Do you speak French? I've always wanted to take the tour of the Gobelins Tapis - Gobelins factory (the famous weaving fabrication where many museum quality tapestries and carpets were made) but it's in French, unless things have recently changed.

Hard to predict the weather, but you could book a cooking class, or a wine tasting class Ô Château. The wine classes tend to be at night. 

The 1st and 2nd Arondisements have Passages - covered shopping arcades - not malls, but historic covered passages filled with stores, restaurants, different personalities.

If you dont want to visit the huge museums, there are some great smaller ones that are less touristed. The Musée Marmottan MonetMusée Jacquemart-André Musée Cognacq-JayMuseum of European Photo or Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson

Opera Garnier is my favourite place in Paris, and a place that is often overlooked. I lived near Paris last year, and my friend and I visited the theatre on a rainy day and we spent ages there. The price isn't much and you can look around most of the theatre.

More obvious places are The Louvre which is huge, therefore definitely worth going to on a rainy day.

Catacombes de Paris are worth going to, and can be made even creepier with the effects of a rainy day. However, the queues can be long and the queues are outside.

There is always shoping at the Galeries Lafayette Maison. It is on Boulevard Haussmann on at least two blocks. You will find everything your locking for and easaly spend an afternoon.

As a Parisian, i like doing several things during rainy days :

  1. Going to the cinema. You can go to Odéon place. Full of litlle cinéma there
  2. Take a coffee at café saint michel le départ. You can have a nice view of the Place Saint-Michel Place and the seine close.
  3. I go to swim at the piscine inkermann neuilly sur seine

Hey Sarah! Good question...when it rains in Paris I love to just sit in a café and people watch out the window. In terms of more active stuff if you want to get off the beaten path check out 104 centquatre, which is indoors but has tons of studios, a market, shops, cafe, etc. that you can explore and stay dry. Its a super cultural space. For something more historic and traditional the Passages of the 2nd arrondissement and 9e arrondissement (like Rue Vivienne, or Passage du Grand Cerf) or the historic answer to the indoor mall, originally made to allow Parisians to shop and walk and be shielded from the elements. They are great to explore on a rainy day! Hope that helps!
