Don’t let that put you off, insist Italians. "Britain's a great nation," skipper Filippo tells me. "We need it."

I'd like more information about the implications of a no-deal Brexit. So, the hard facts of what that would mean in terms of both impact at home, but also impact if we choose to travel abroad, you know. What additional documentation, different passports, queues at airports…? Nobody likes queues at airports. The biggest worry would be about a huge increase in cost when being abroad, I guess – and then increase in prices in the UK as well.

For British tourists, life in Amalfi is already more expensive. The pound has fallen so a six-euro lemonade from this store now costs about the same in pounds.

For years, a holiday here was straightforward. Now, British people who’ve booked for the end of the year don't yet know what they might have to go through, nor how much more it may all cost.

It costs the same because the pound has fallen in value.
