Sunset in Paris is a magical time, but to be honest, I much prefer dusk. Parisians all over the city are getting off work and stopping in for a quick drink at their neighborhood brasserie. The sky is a dusky purple-blue and the buildings are illuminated from within as lights are turned on and fireplaces are lit. The thousands of lights along bridges and buildings that Paris is so famous for are starting to flicker on, but the city is still illuminated by the last remnants of sunlight. For me, this is when the city is at its most beautiful.
