    The main question has been answered and you're probably aware that the prong adapter shown in the picture you posted doesn't fit sockets in every European country, so this may be redundant but just in case:

    Although those will work... I recommend these. This is a universal plug converter to Type E/F. I use a few of those with my US bought good in Europe. The fit is perfect and the contact is solid.
    When I was in the US I bought similar converters like the OP's and although they were cheap the connection was loose just after a month...

    You don't need any kind of voltage converter. Just get a simple adapter for the outlet...most electronics (including macs) change voltage automatically (that 110-220 you see)...don't waste money on one for a mac.
