The Confluence shopping Centre is quite a large complex of shops in an interesting area. You can get there on foot, as we did, or you can catch the tram or you can go there some other way. It is like many other regional shopping centres with most of the usual shops. It is a shopping centre!

My favourite mall in Lyon. It's not as big as Part Dieu (the mall by the main station), however its much more modern, has many restaurant options and the dining balconies offer a nice view of the river.

It is not in the City Centre, but the tram line passes directly through. Also easy to reach by car.

If you're in the mood for a shopping mall, the Confluence is a good choice. I chose to go here more for the boat ride down the Saone river than the shopping itself. We took the vaporetto from the Bonaparte bridge. It leaves only once per hour so check the posted schedule. At the time we were there it left at ten past the hour. It's about a 15 min ride up the river and cost 2€ per person. The mall is quite modern, with over 70 shops of mostly clothing, shoes and accessories. There is a movie theatre and over 20 places to eat when you get hungry after all the shopping. When your feet get tired, there are places to sit and relax as well as free –although weak – Wifi. After shopping we took the boat back. It leaves on the hour and half hour. I don't know for sure, but on the way back we saw some people showing their receipt for purchases made at the mall and they didn't have to pay the 2€ fee.

The night before my departure, I decided to skip the dinner with several conference attendees in the city center, and to walk from my hotel toward the confluence of the Rhone and Saone rivers. Usually confluences are nice looking and practically important. Off the top of my head, I remember the beauty of the confluence at Harper’s Ferry, where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet. Rhone is the second largest river that empties into the Mediterranean, and Shone is not a small river. I walked past a back street, and bumped into several white vans that parked on the roadside with dim-lit candles near the dashboards. At one point, I did not know where I should go. A woman from North Africa greeted me from a distance. She was nice enough to take a look at my map, but could not offer help. Before long, I turned left onto Pont Pasteur. Having reached the other side, I realized that it would not be easy to walk to the confluence. I was told that there was a mall, but I was uninterested, and also it should be closed by them. I was interested in the confluence literally, but looking at the map, I am sure if the place is convenient and accessible in the first place. Few people were on streets, so I decided to return, exhausted and disappointed. Sometimes failure itself is a good learning experience. Life is short, and I am unsure if I will have chance to visit Lyon, or France, for that matter. But walking on the bridge itself is memorable.

There was very little to make this shopping centre worth a special visit. It was rather bland and it could have been in a town anywhere in the world... unless you have a thing about shopping malls. On the plus side there is a good vaparetto service to the old town. At 4 Euros one way it’s a cheap way of seeing Lyon from the river.

The shopping center building is very modern. Also the buildings around the Confluence shopping center are very modern and it is worthwhile to go there. The shops are not that impressive. From the Confluence shopping center, you can go to Musée des Confluences by walking for 15 minutes. You can use a tram. The building is very impressive.

While in France, I needed a couple of things so I ended up in the mall. In the shopping center, which is called, there’s different varieties of stores. There are famous stores from USA and stores I’ve never seen before. Inside the mall there’s also restaurants in the top level where it’s an open floor and the breeze comes in. You could sit and eat and enjoy the beautiful view. There’s free WiFi but it’s limited. I believe it’s only for 20 minutes. But you could use the WiFi from McDonald’s but its not so good. Now the very first floor, which is zero floor, there’s a supermarket and they have very reasonable prices and fresh food. I’ve shopped there more often while staying in France. The shopping center is very beautiful and big. It’s a nice place to and visit. There’s lots of green architecture surrounding it as well.

Its a bit out of the way. If you don't plan to go to the museum (I didn't visit so not sure who it is) I'm not sure its worth a visit. You can't really see much from the actual point of confluence. It was fun walking to the tip on such a windy day, but wasn't not a highlight by any means.

Visit the museum and walk down the back to the rivers Saone and Rhone meet. Great picture taking place after few hours spent at the museum a stone throw away.

The confluence of the Soane and Rhône is impressive. They are sizeable rivers and their meeting in Lyon has given it strategic importance. It is more impressive to know that the point of confluence is several hundred metres further south as a result of the city reclaiming land previously swamp or intermittently overrun in times of flooding. Worth a trip to view or sail through on a tour boat.
