In Europe there are minimum levels of Insurance required by the Laws of whichever country you are in. The levels required by Law vary from country to country.
Insurance issued in one EU member state (country, to you and me) generally includes the MINIMUM cover required to use the roads in other member states.
For 'foreign' road users from outside the EU, or for EU road users going outside of the EU a Green Card is still generally (but not everywhere) the accepted proof of Insurance in the countries confirmed thereon.
So - if I read your question properly, coming from outside the EU you will need some acceptable proof of the legal minimum insurance. Either a Certificate of Insurance issued by an authorised insurer within the EU or a Green Card confirming cover by another insurer.
Ask your 'home' insurer for extending cover to EU.
And remember not all of Europe is EU - eg Switzerland, Norway and others are not in the EU.
