If Tableau doesn't recognize your location data, here's what you can do:
If Tableau does not immediately recognize your location data, and you can't build a map view, you'll need to assign geographic roles to your fields. See the Assign a geographic role to a field section below to learn how.
Note: This procedure only works if your location data is built in to Tableau.
Please look into this link:Prepare Your Geographic Fields

To get the Europe in your map you can manually add lats and longs in Matching Location field. Just google the lats and longs for Europe and enter that into Matching location field. In that field you will get one drop down arrow. Click on that arrow and select first option Enter Latitude and Longitude.
Hope this will help you.
Thank you for this links. Unfortunatly I had already done this exercise and still I do not have regions in my locations as showed in attached.
Thank you for the reply. I used your method to try to show Europe but unfortunatly it gives me just a point in the map and not the possibility to define an area.
Do you know of any other solutions? Besides transforming my data? Because I have specific values for Europe that I would like to show highlighting all Europe but unfortunatly I can not.
Thank you in advance.
