A pleasurable Journey with the Mercedes V-Class
Admire the imposing stance of the Mercedes V-Class before you step inside. Notice the shiny front grille with the iconic 3-pointed star at its centre. The silhouette is strong and stands out from the crowd with huge alloy wheels and glaring headlamps. Mercedes says “Make the journey as pleasurable as the destination’, and this luxury people carrier will do just that.
The seats of your Mercedes V-Class can be electronically arranged to suit your requirements. Passengers can face one another for a chat, or look outwards to admire the view. With the versatility of flexible seating, ample space and a plush interior, renting a luxury Mercedes MPV is an opulent way to travel.
Drive your V-Class rental northeast inland through the scenic Catalonian landscape towards the ancient town of Girona. This region of land has been fought over for centuries and the buildings and architecture speak of the melting pot of cultures that made their mark on it.
Stroll along the medieval walls of the Old Town
Take a walk along the medieval wall built around the Old Town, it is spectacular and makes for perfect pictures. Climb the 91 steps up into the towers of Sant Feliu and see the Sant Feliu Bridge that crosses the Onyar River. Admire the 11th century tapestry that is truly breathtaking. Then take a stroll through the ancient narrow streets of the attractive Jewish Quarter and cross the ancient footbridge over the River. Stop for lunch at the El Celler de Can Roca, listed as one of the world's Top 50.
Girona is the setting for the Game of Thrones
