You might consider the city of Budapest, divided by the Danube River into two distinctive cities--Buda and Pest--to be essentially one large World Heritage Site.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Fri): snap pictures at Szechenyi Chain Bridge, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), then examine the collection at House of Terror Museum, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Parliament. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Matthias Church, steep yourself in history at Fisherman's Bastion, pause for some photo ops at Shoes on the Danube Bank, then test the waters at a local thermal spa, and finally pause for some photo ops at Hősök tere.
