Day 1

Toledo Metro Station

Inside the Toledo subway in Naples

Our itinerary in splendid Naples in the footsteps of the characters of The Sea Beyond starts from the Toledo Metro Station. Here, in episode 1 of season 1, Filippo, a northern boy from a good family with a career as a pianist, meets Naditza, a gypsy girl who commits petty crimes to "take refuge" in the IPM (Juvenile Penitentiary Institute) and escape from her parents. The scene in the station sees them share a kiss in passing, for Naditza to distract the young man and the guards, while she steals a wallet.

In the San Giuseppe district, the Toledo Metro Station is among the most beautiful in Europe. In fact, inside it is the Galleria del Mare, an area entirely covered with blue and ocher tiles. On the ceiling, in the center of the escalators, a cone of light filters along all the levels of the station letting natural light shine down. A real museum of contemporary art in the Neapolitan subsoil, full of mosaics to wow you. This is the ideal point for visiting the centers via Roma and via Toledo, and the majestic architectural work of the Galleria Umberto I which is only 500 meters from the station.

San Vincenzo Pier in the Port of Naples

Leaving from the Galleria Umberto I, it's time to walk for 10 minutes towards the second stage of the journey, the symbol of the television series. The Juvenile Institute which houses the beloved protagonists of the series. Although the fiction refers to the Nisida Juvenile Penitentiary Institute (IPM), the scenes of the The Sea Beyond prison are not filmed on the Flegrea island, but actually at the Marine Military Naval Base, located in via Acton in Naples.

Present in all the episodes of The Sea Beyond, with Molo San Vincenzo it’s the ideal place to enjoy a walk of about 4 kilometers along the sea, admiring the Neapolitan Gulf from an unprecedented perspective and retracing the stages and the history of a place that for years it was a focal point of the city. The naval base was, in fact, the ancient headquarters of the Royal Navy of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, the place where ships were launched and cannons were built.

Go as far as the lighthouse, known as the Lanterna del Molo, and reach the end of the pier, where the statue of San Gennaro stands defending the city from Vesuvius and the sea. In the prison scenes, with the teens outdoor activities, you can see in the background the port of Naples and the majestic Maschio Angioino, in Corso Vittorio Emanuele III: a stop at the historic medieval and Renaissance castle is a must.

The alleyways of Naples
