VERMILLION, S.D. – Members of the public are invited to join Clayton Lehmann, Ph.D., professor of history, as he leads a 10-day trip to Greece for alumni and friends of the University of South Dakota on March 6–15, 2020.
Since 2005, Lehmann has guided USD students on tours of the archaeological, historical and cultural sites of the Mediterranean in a Greece study abroad program. Now the public will have the opportunity to join him on a 10-day trip that begins and ends in the capital city of Athens and includes stops at famous museums and lesser-known haunts discovered by Lehmann over many years of travel and study in the region. Michael Kruger, Ph.D., dean of the USD College of Arts & Sciences, will also travel with the group.
“The only thing I like better than traveling in Greece is showing some of my favorite places to my friends as we travel together,” Lehmann said. “I can guarantee fascinating historical sites, beautiful scenery, delicious food and marvelous hospitality.”
The tour cost is $4,149 per person departing from Minneapolis, based on double occupancy (other departure cities are available upon request). Inclusions consist of air transportation, land transportation, hotel accommodations, breakfast daily and six dinners, English-speaking Greek tour manager, sightseeing and admission fees, tipping and taxes and optional evening lectures by Lehmann.
