For development, definitely Visual Studio. You can use Visual Studio or Visual Studio Code. You can also write Python in Visual Studio Code. See the article Python in Visual Studio Code. You can also write Python in Visual Studio, but I think you need to install Python Tools for that.

Here is an older article detailing the difference between Visual Studio Code and Visual Studio.

Lastly, depending on what your needs are, have a look at writing mobile apps using Xamarin or .NET Core.

First of all: You need to distinguish tools from languages. Then when it's about "web applications" you need also to consider frameworks to use. And before looking into frameworks, you need to look into architecture: MVC, REST or classic to mention some. And you need to also look at the entire tool chain, cause it's today not only development, but also deployment.

I don't think there is a "best" for every category. The ones strengths are the others weakness. So without concrete corner stones, we cannot really help.

But from my own experience: It is easy to implement an MVC backend only delivering data and minimal dynamic pages and implement the rest in the client  using REST (knockout (simple data binding) or angular (SPA)).
