At one point in history, Naples was divided into more than two dozen neighborhoods. Present day city geography breaks Naples into 10 municipalities, but the neighborhood names like Saint Lucia are often still used when referring to various parts of the city.
Saint Lucia refers to the area surrounding the Castel dell'Ovo or Egg Castle. The neighborhood has been the subject and inspiration for some traditional Neapolitan songs, the best-known simple titled Santa Lucia. Numerous lyric renditions are known and recognized around the world.
Situated by the Bay of Naples, the Saint Lucia Neighborhood enjoys nice seaside views. The waterfront location includes a long promenade popular with walkers and joggers. There are also many hotels and restaurants that take advantage of the views.
