Modules can be defined as the Python files with an extension “.py”. The module name will be same as that of the file name. A Python module can own a collection of classes, functions or variables defined as well as applied.

On the other side, Packages are namespaces which has various packages and modules themselves. They are merely directories.

Every package in Python programming language is a directory which should have a special file known as _init_.py. This file can be void and it shows that the directory it consists is a Python package. This can be imported similar to the module which can be imported.
