A dinner cruise on the Seine is fun, IMO.

There are lots of great excursions out of town. Besides Versailles, a trip to some chateau in the Loire Valley, the D-Day beaches (could be an overnight trip), Giverney for Impressionism, and the nearby cities of Riems or Rouen.
For a church in Paris, I'd suggest Sacre Coeur in the Monmartre district. Perched on a hill with a nice view, plus the district is interesting. And yeah, Reims has a great cathedral.
