What was the rocket used for the Apollo lunar missions?

The Apollo lunar missions used the Saturn V rocket. The Saturn V was the largest rocket ever successfully flown.

The Apollo missions to the Moon were achieved with a cleverly   designed spacecraft made up of three main modules. One housed the crew, the next one contained equipment and the third was the Moon landing craft. The Moon-landing craft itself was designed in two parts. The astronauts left the Moon in the upper part of this module.
