On the day of your flight, you should be aware of the location of your check-in counter and which terminal you are going. There are four terminals in Fiumicino Airport alone, namely Terminals 1, 2, 3, and 5. Your flight to London will likely fly from Terminal 1, 2, or 3, so be sure to check your ticket or confirm with your airline on where you can start the check-in process. Generally, Alitalia flights to London are accommodated at Terminals 1 and 3, easyJet via Terminal 2, and British Airways, Monarch Airlines, Norwegian Air Shuttle, and Vueling via Terminal 3.
Meanwhile, Rome Ciampino Airport has a simpler terminal layout. You will find here a Departures/Arrivals terminal for both national and international flights. Low-cost carriers and charter flights mainly fly from here, which might be easier than boarding on Rome Fiumicino Airport. You should still arrive early, though, so you can start your check-in procedures and clear through Security and Immigration. Ryanair flights to London fly from Ciampino Airport. Both airports offer various choices on shopping and dining, allowing you to enjoy some browsing and munching, if you still have time before the boarding.
Upon arriving at a specific London airport, you will find various options available for you. Heathrow, for instance, offers the Tube that connects the airport to Central London. It is cheaper than the Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect, but it can take longer to get to the city via this option. Travelling by coach or bus should also be considered, while taxis also provide another way to reach London. If you come from Gatwick, you can go on Gatwick Express, a train which runs between Gatwick's South Terminal and London Victoria Station. Coaches and taxis are available as well.
London City Airport is also well connected to the Tube network, with its own stop on the Docklands Light Railway. Local bus routes, taxis, and private chauffeur services are also offered here. In Stansted, there is the train line Stansted Express ready to take passengers. Metered taxis also ply the route to the city, allowing for convenience for those who do not want to take the train. Luton has the East Midland Trains and the Thameslink, which also ventures to Central London. Coach and taxi services are located here, as well. Car rental options can be found in all the airports serving London, which is an option to take if you want to drive yourself.
On the date of your departure, be sure to arrive at the airport at least three hours in advance to finish the check-in process early. You should also have the necessary documents, from the basic passport and visa to the IDs you will need.
What to expect in London
Rome is one hour ahead from London, making it necessary that you adjust your clock before arriving in your destination airport. You should also get weather forecasts, so you can pack the right type of clothes. It is better to pack an additional coat and umbrella, though, just in case. You should also bring appropriate clothing, as the weather in London can be comparatively cooler than it is in Rome. The summer in this part of United Kingdom can be balmy, though, so be sure to plan ahead for your trip. A guide to London's landmarks is also necessary, so you know all the possible places you can visit during your stay. London's cost of living is comparatively higher in all aspects as well, from restaurants and groceries to transportation and rental fees. Utilities and consumer goods also have higher rates in London than in Rome, which makes it necessary to prepare a considerable budget for your travel needs.
