Founder & CEO, Stellavision Travel

Hi! My name is Zoe Shapiro, I am the CEO and Founder of Stellavision Travel. I am a marketing pro who took a year-long sabbatical in Italy in 2019. When I initially moved there, expecting a one-year remote-working stint, I was captivated by the country's spirit. Italy expanded my senses and taught me a new version of confidence and self acceptance.

As a frequent solo female traveler myself, I recognized the increasing trend and an absence of female-orientated, all-inclusive tours – so I launched Stellavision to make travel not just comfortable but celebratory. For me, Stellavision aims to eliminate many obstacles women might face when touring by themselves, while also creating an inclusive community of like-minded travelers that push past typical tourist barriers.

We will be launching a new size-inclusive tour later this year and I'm excited to share our amazing community with you all! Please feel free to reach out with any questions – grazie millie!

Hi Zoe, thanks for sharing Stellavision Travel with the Travel Massive community!

I’m curious about your take on solo and group travel and how your customers perceive this messaging. If the trip is taken as a group, is it solo travel?

Also, how did you come up with the name Stellavision? Is there a meaning behind it? It’s a cool brand name!

Ciao! And thank you.

I would say that our travelers are (most often) solo travelers. They're looking at our small group trips because their holiday budget or time off schedule doesn't necessarily align with the people in their lives. Or - they're looking to meet new travel buddies. At its core, Stellavision is all about community. There is plenty of down time and free time if people are seeking moments alone (I'm an introvert, I get it!) but the group allows for the options to be social, share these amazing travel experiences and more often than not, make new friends. Nothing makes my heart leap like seeing people who have met on a Stellavision tour have a reunion in London or LA or (last weekend) the Florida Keys.

My middle name is Stella so there's a quiet personal connection to the name! But more than that, I'm love a portmanteau / witty peice of branding. Stella is a beautiful Italian word that means stars and when it comes to travel experiences, I love the idea that as travelers we have 'stars in our eyes'. Our blog is called the Stellavision Channel. Fun little moments like that.
