Camerino is an historical town, known and respected since Roman times, which became important especially during the middle-age. Its old centre has seen little change over the last few centuries, leaving it a particularly attractive sight, and the opulence of the architecture is all the more impressive considering that the town can claim a mere 7,000 inhabitants. The "Da Varano" Ducal palace was one of the most sumptuous in Italy at the time, and in 1336 the University, one of the oldest in Italy, was founded.
Camerino (see photos below) is conveniently located in hilly surroundings (Marche region), near both to spectacular Appennini mountains and to the pleasant Adriatic coast.
