Yes and yes.

Zope is a highly Pythonic framework for building web-facing
applications.  It's been quite good for at least a couple years now...
good enough for enterprise-level systems, good enough for e-commerce.

It's not trivial to learn, but it's well worth it if you need something
more robust than CGI-style web programming tools.

Perhaps... it is highly object-oriented and readily extensible with
Python.  Zope is hardly the only way, but it is worth a good look.
