About
The 11 Art Stations along Line 1 of the underground in Naples, managed by ANM, are the result of a project by the municipal administration in Naples. They are one of the most interesting examples of decentralized museum spread over the urban area: more than 150 site-specific works of art by 80 protagonists of contemporary art have been placed inside and outside the stations. Metro Art ANM’s educational service promotes this rich heritage of art and architecture: guided tours, school activities, workshops for children, private tours.

CNN and the Daily Telegraph have recognized Toledo as the most beautiful metro station in Europe. Toledo, opened in 2012, bypassed Munich's minimalist Westfriedhof and the luxurious (according to CNN pompous) Komsomolskaya in Moscow. Architect Oscar Tusquets and artists William Kentridge and Robert Wilson have developed an unusual design of the deepest (50 m) station in Naples. Or rather, the part of it where the escalator is located. The unusual overflow of light at the top really catches the eye. We were here late in the evening and this is the best option to linger near the escalator and look up. I think it's not safe during the day. However, all the admiration will remain here. It seems that the designers were contracted to do only the lobby. Or they weren't paid. The same photo in all ratings and there are no trains! This is because the platform itself is nothing unusual. There are hundreds of such platforms around the world. Therefore, CNN's rating is controversial. I would recognize Toledo as the most beautiful lobby of the metro station.

The Toledo metro station in Naples is the most beautiful in Europe. An important recognition for the Campania capital. The Toledo station, located in the central via of the same name, is part of the Art Stations project of the metro line 1 of the Neapolitan capital. The project is admired above all for ceilings adorned with mosaics.
It enchants with its spectacular scenography, designed in shades of blue, black and ocher (sea, earth, tuff), with references to the local landscape and architecture, proceeding for different levels of immersion and playing with the luminous refraction .
In short, the Toledo Station is a museum open 24 hours a day.

Artistic and impressive interior with mosaic ceilings and walls. You have to have a ticket to see it, do not miss it if you are using public transport. About being the most beautiful in Europe is a matter of taste. St. Petersburg underground is of a different style, but...

I would not say this is the most beautiful station in Europe or in the world as some have said. This is a nice station with lovely mosaic art work as you go down and up. That's it.
If you are near Via Toledo go in to view it buying a ticket. I did but was in and out..not even 10 minutes.

Totally WOWWED by the hall at this train station, and rushed to whip out the camera. It is a good station to visit and get out into the shopping area downtown.

Take the walk from the station towards Piazza del Plebiscito, quite an experience.

We worked this station into our day, something different and eye catching if you are on your journey. If you are stuck for time I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

One of the refurbished Metro stations.
They did a great job with this one, immediately you enter you are faced with an optical conundrum.
Well worth a stop there.

This station is a piece of a contemporary art.The infusion of old and new are impressive. When they dug down, some ruins were found and you can see them just after the entrance and exit areas ( really small ruins tho )
The colour symbolised the blue of the sea and the sky, colour typical of this beautiful city!
