Climbing the Tower of Pisa

Does anyone know how to make reservations for climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I would appreciate any current info.
Thank you.

I did not know that it was open for climbing already. When I was there (many years ago) we didn't have reservations, we simply stood in line.

don't forget to validate your ticket before you enter, since there are large fines if you don't.

As of last October, you could not climb the tower. Maybe that has changed but at that time they were taking additional steps to keep it from leaning more.

I believe it will not reopen for visitors until November.

We did it many, many years ago before it closed and it was no big deal, so Julie, don't feel disappointed. Just go and look and take the required photo.

The latest situation seems to be that as of June 17, only pre-booked groups of scholars and others with specialist interest can climb the tower. The general public are not due to be admitted until November. The official tourism site seems to confirm this:

I read in the past 2 days that they either have or are just going to remove the cables which were in place while the stabilization of the tower was going on.

I ran up the tower in '70 and it was a very interesting experience. if you can go up, do it
