You are invited to spend a weekend in Camerino, not only during the COURTYARD IN FLOWERS event but also at other times of the year.
Its location at a height of 700 meters makes it an ideal place from April to October but the winter months have their attraction too, especially for those who in spite of the cold like to walk and enjoy the snowy landscapes of the Sibillini.
The slanted light of winter also offers photography buffs a feast of opportunities for wonderful shots.
The worn sandstone of the medieval buildings comes alive in many places at dusk and dawn when from the white and pink limestone there emerge thousands of pinpricks of light coming from rock-salt crystals hidden in the stone, while the wind, as it wends its way along the small streets, carries with it voices and fragrances from far away.
Nature and art, but also one of the oldest universities in Italy founded in 1336 that every year opens its doors to students from Italy and abroad.
The art, the landscape, the folklore, from medieval festivals to celebrate the patron saint San Venancio, the seasonal fairs, the season of plays and concerts, the world's longest nougat. Last on the list but top in pleasure are the gastronomic specialities: mushrooms and truffles, aromatic spirits, preserved meats (including the famous 'ciabuscolo'), cheese, saffron, homemade thin pasta that goes very well with simple sauces from the old tradition (not to mention 'vincisgrassi'?), all these invite you to relaxation and to refresh yourself.
Farm stays (agriturismi), little restaurants,and confortable B&B, located in ancient buildings
or in rustic farmhouses,offer accommodation for all tastes and all budgets and
the chance to sample local delicacies and to learn of the many things to see
Camerino awaits you with the green of spring, with the cool of summer, with the warm colours of autumn, with a thousand colours of flowers, it awaits you to introduce you to one of Italy’s most beautiful corners.
