According to Wikipedia, TripAdvisor.com is a travel information website, covering more than 30,000 destinations worldwide. With more than 15 million reviews and opinions and nearly 30 million unique visitors a month, TripAdvisor is also the largest travel community on the web.
So, with that in mind, imagine our surprise to see Vesuvio mentioned (in conjuction with San Francisco as a whole) as one of the top ten literary destinations in the world.
Here's what they had to say:
8. SAN FRANCISCO - Kerouac moved here from New York as did poet Allen Ginsberg. A traveller said: "Have a beer at the Vesuvio Cafe and you might be sitting where Kerouac sat."
