There are probably three to look at in following the advice you've already received: Pyramid, Django and Flask.  If you're a PC/Mac shop look first and harder at Django.  Otherwise start with Flask and Pyramid.  I use Flask because the ecosystem seems more manageable to me, but I'm sure that's just because of my previous experience, so yours may lead you to Pyramid, especially coming from pylons.
