This trip is the one that takes you longer to get to Evora. You have to take a ferry to the other side of the river in Lisbon and get a train and change in another train station. This is a very nice trip and quite an adventure. If you wish to see all the landscapes and enjoy the boat trip (which is definately amazing watching the north part of lisbon going away) this is the trip for you. Theres also another way of making the trip all by train which is also very nice (you'll pass the Ponte 25 de Abril brigde to the other side enjoying the view of lisbon from a vey high point passing the bridge under the asfalt road of the bridge.
Remeber the bus trip only take 1h30m...
