Meeting point:

This tour starts from our office. Please be aware to not miss the entrance of our office: Look out for a street sign with our red circled logo and the white words "Maya Tours" on it Our Office is located near the entrance of the Vatican Museums (approx. a 5 minute walk). If you are taking public transport, we suggest you take the Metro (A-line) and get off at "Ottaviano". Once outside the station, head south on Via Ottaviano towards St. Peter's square then turn right onto Via Germanico (second street on your right). We are on the right-hand side at number 16. The street is easy to reach by Taxi as well. If you are new in town we recommend you to look up our location on google maps before as Rome's streets might seem a bit confusing in the beginning. If you have any trouble finding us for whatever reason please don't hesitate to contact us!
