From my understanding, sigma bonds have atoms that interact end-to-end, and sigma bonds allow the bound atoms to ROTATE on an axes, due to the bond's cylindrical symmetry. Pi ponds, on the other hand, overlap side-by-side, and Pi bonds do NOT allow atoms to rotate, because pi ponds have electron density on each side of the axis. I hope this helped!
