I'm going to Paris at the beginning of April. What should I see? Where should I eat? How much should I take? And what's the best thing you've done there?

Am going with my OH for three nights. We're not on an unlimited budget (in fact, I'm wondering what the minimum one needs to take is and will then decide how much I can add to that - my bank charges £1.25 for every foreign currency transaction so will probably need to be cash) and mainly plan to wander round and take photos.
I know I'd like to see Bellville and Pere La Chaise cemeteries, the taxidermy shop (name escapes me now), have hot chocolate at Angelina's and visit one of the markets - preferably one selling textiles and bric-a-brac rather than furniture - for people-watching. I don#t speak French but am happy enough buying picnic lunches from the supermarket as they're probably nicer than the London version! Also, I know that museums are free on the first Sunday of the month which gives us freedom to see as many as briefly as we like and then go back and pay if we want to see more. Beyond that...I'm not sure.
Suggestions welcome! I like crafts, thrift-hunting, books and quirky things. OH is really into boardgames so we may check out one of the stores there.
