There are plenty of things to keep one busy in Camerino.

If you are here on May 18th, you can see the celebrations in honor of the patron saint, San Venanzio. It lasts two weeks, and the city goes into the past to the time when the da Varano family ruled. These religious festivities bring back court life. There's a series of rites, ceremonies, a bonfire in the square, archer competition, foot races, ancient music. Competions between the three division of the city create much excitement.

You can visit Universita di Camerino (1936) with its five divisions: Architecture, Law, Pharmacy, Science & Technology, & Veterinary Medicine. By all means, see Ducal Palace, part of the University.

Visit Piazza Cavour and the statue of Sixtus V its center.

From the Ducal Palace, a spiral staircase goes to the university's Botanical Garden. Also the Porticoed courtyard of Ducal Palace leads to a balcony with splendid views of the Sibillini Mountains.b.

Also in Piazza Cavour is the
portico of the Archbishop's Palace which is a Renaissance building where the Diocesan Museum is housed.

Don't forget to see the
Cathedral which takes up a side of the square and has lots of great art.

By all means, see the restored
Teatro Filippo Marchetti located off the courtyard in Palazzo Comunalle (1856) which has been nicely restored with its traditional "horseshoe with elegant boxes on three levels and a gallery above."

There's also
The Convent of San Domenico today houses the Civic Museum and a Museum of Natural Science. It has been restored and today is the home of work from the Camerino School of Painting.

Camerino has several noteworthy churches:
Church of San Francesco, Church of San Filippo, Church of Santa Caterina (state archives), Church of Santa Maria in Via, & Church of San Venanzio.

There's plenty to keep anyone busy while visiting
Camerino.
