We will be in Madrid in late summer and unfortunately have limited time and thus are trying to decide between day trips to one of: Toledo, El Escorial/Valley of Fallen, or Segovia. We like history, art, and architecture, and all three seem appealing. Based on some research, it sounds that while all 3 would be worth visiting, Toledo is probably the best choice for us given its historical importance and art, but any thoughts would be much appreciated. Its tough to get a sense for the cities/sites from just reading/pictures.
Also, if we end up doing Toledo, is a day trip sufficient to see the major sites? I realize its far from ideal and we wont have the chance to fully appreciate the city and its charms, but given other travel constraints, we have limited time and don't think we'll be back in Spain for many years (we are traveling from the US)
