Three days are not much - I wouldn't go to Salzburg, just stay in Vienna and enjoy your time. I know that normally everybody wants to see as much as possible, because you never know when you might come back again.

This forum is full of interesting and informative threads regarding sights in Vienna. Buy a guide, and highlight the places you are interested in.

If you have further questions, don't hesitate to ask them.

I agree that three days in Austria is not enough/not worth hauling out to Salzburg for a day. It is a beatiful town like many others in Europe, but Vienna is special enough to spend all 3 days there. Start with the downtown area of Vienna inside the "Ring" street, then areas just around the ring. Have a great trip!
