Two US citizens flying from Rome (FCO) to London (Heathrow LHR) in a couple weeks. The flight is at 6:35am. Our ride to the airport can only drop us off at 10pm the night before.
Will we be ALLOWED to wait in the airport during that time?

We just found out that our ride to the airport (FCO) had to reschedule and can not make it that morning. They can, however, drop us off at 10pm the night before, which is 8 hours, 35 minutes before the flight.
We do not have a problem waiting at the airport for that time. Actually, we could get caught up on necessary paperwork during that time. Also, this might save us a useless hotel night we wouldn't fully need. We do not intend to try sleep in the airport.
So the question is, will we be ALLOWED to arrive at 10pm at night and wait overnight in the airport until our flight?
P.S. Your assistance is appreciated, but please just answer the question. We can make other arrangements to get to the airport, but this is a narrow question about being allowed to wait at the airport or how to find out if we will be able to. Thanks so much. :-)
