She provided an excellent continuous commentary, demonstrating a thorough knowledge of the history, art, architecture, government and culture of Florence. Open and personable, Simonida answered our many questions without hesitation. She also offered helpful suggestions about places to visit that would be of interest to us, both in Florence as well as in Tuscany and Chianti
