They are both covalent bonds formed by the overlap of atomic orbitals. Sigma bonds are formed by end-to-end overlaps and pi bonds are formed by side-to-side overlaps (the lobes of the orbitals overlapping one another). Sigma bonds are stronger because there is generally more overlap compared to pi bonds.
