What is the difference between pi and sigma bonds?

Sigma bonds are stronger than pi bonds.

Every molecule has sigma bonds, but not every molecule has pi bonds. Molecules with double (1 sigma and 1 pi bond) or triple (1 sigma and 2 pi bonds) bonds will have pi bonds, which are the result of the overlapping of p orbitals.

A single bond is a sigma bond. A double bond is a sigma bond and a pi bond. A triple bond is one sigma and two pi bonds.
A sigma bond is covalent and shows no resonance.
A pi bond is a covalent bond between orbitals perpendicular to the bond direction.
