You can enjoy this tour at anytime of day at any season. However I would recommend earlier in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the crowds. Please note the Pantheon's hours are 8:30am-7:30pm Mondays-Saturdays and closes at 6pm on Sundays. Religious holidays may close it earlier and it is also closed to the public during masses at 5pm on Saturdays and 10:30am on Sundays.
