Júlio César da Silva e Souza (born February 26, 1980 in Itaguai) is a retired Brazilian football player.

He has played for Turkish side Gaziantepspor, having joined them from FC Rapid Bucureşti. He was released during the winter break because he did not play as good as expected for the money spent on him, and because he was the highest paid member of the squad and because Rapid had financial problems anyway. Júlio César also played for Greek side AEK Athens from 2005 to 2008. He scored the goal in the famous 1–0 win for AEK against AC Milan in front of 60.000 spectators in the Olympic Stadium Athens with a direct free kick.

Before leaving AEK Athens Julio Cesar stated his last words to the Greek press: I will never forget AEK and will always be in my heart, I will return some day. In the first part of 2009–2010 season he scored 7 goals in Turkish Super Lig.
