Well the center is packed with things to see, but at least see the Stephansdom, the Ringstrasse (with all the buildings), the Belvedere. And you should go to see schloss Schönbrunn. (but I doubt if you have enough time to have enough time to explore the surrounding gardens. If you have two days, it means that you have time to go to the Prater in the evening.

At least have coffee (or tea) in one of the traditional coffeeshops in Vienna, and go for a good schnitzel (don't go for the squashed schnitzels at figglmüller, who advertise they have the biggest schnitzels in Vienna. They don't mention they are also the flattest schnitzels!! touristic rip-off) Try Café-Restaurant Gütenberg at Lügeck (small street/square not too far away from the Stephansplatz) for a lovely dinner (outside when possible). After that go for a Marilleneis (icecream) to one of the Italian Icecream shops. (on the Mariahilferstrasse you will find at least three good ones under the same name: Paolo Bortolotti)
