  Shaking hands is a more formal way of greeting
by Propermark

Here in Sicily and also in Italy we use to greet either men or women by kissing on the cheeks if you know them well. This may seem a bit strange to people from other countries but here it is prefectly normal for 2 men to kiss on the cheeks when meeting.. this is our way to greet a close friend! So don't think it's weird:)))
