The Traveler: Diane Sisko of Woodbury.

The scene: A view of Positano, Italy, from high above in the tiny town of Nocelle on the Amalfi Coast.

The location: The Amalfi Coast “is a gorgeous area of steep mountains that is good for hiking, eating fabulous Italian food and seeing the most spectacular views of small towns located on a sparkling deep blue sea,” Sisko wrote in an e-mail. She enjoyed staying in Nocelle (pop. 61); getting there required hairpin turns on narrow roads, so most tourists stay down below, in Positano. There were fewer tourists than in Positano. “It is a charming place with a tiny grocery, a restaurant with delicious food, romantic villas and the place where we had one of our most memorable meals in Italy. A woman and her mother made and served a six-course meal that was out of this world,” Sisko wrote.

The trip: Sisko spent two weeks traveling with friends — a 60th birthday celebration for one of them — to Venice, Florence and Rome, but enjoyed the Amalfi Coast the most.

Equipment: Sisko used a Panasonic G9 camera with a Tamron 14-150mm lens to get this shot.
