Python strings: single vs double quotes

Self-tutoring about Python: the tutor mentions double vs single quotes.

So far as I can tell, there is no difference between enclosing a string in single, compared with double, quotes in Python. (In some other languages there is a difference.) However, if one type is in the string already (for instance, an apostrophe), then the string should be enclosed in the other kind, unless the internal one is escaped. That’s my experience.
