Giulia da Varano (1524 - February 18, 1547) was the daughter of the Duke of Camerino who married to the Duke of Urbino Guidobaldo II della Rovere.

The painting Venus of Urbino was given to her at her wedding with intended as an instructive 'model' for Giulia Varano, the duke Guidobaldo II della Rovere's extremely young bride. The argument for the painting's didacticism was made by the late art historian Rona Goffen in 1997's “Sex, Space, and Social History in Titian’s Venus of Urbino."
