You can also look into CherryPy. It's a bit different from all the other

It'll let you write your website in an object-oriented way, just like any
regular python app.

And yes, it is stable and it has been used in production for almost a year
on a big, fast, high-traffic website.

BTW, it will let you write several lines of python code within HTML
templates and it will indent the block correctly (provided that your lines
are correctly indented within the block).
