Coherent quantum control and resonance fluorescence of few-level quantum systems is integral for quantum technologies. Here we perform resonance and near-resonance excitation of three-dimensionally confined excitons in monolayer WSe2 to reveal near-ideal single-photon fluorescence with count rates up to 3 MHz. Using high-resolution photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy of the localized excitons, we uncover a weakly fluorescent exciton state ∼5 meV blue shifted from the ground-state exciton, providing important information to unravel the precise nature of quantum states. Successful demonstration of resonance fluorescence paves the way to probe the localized exciton coherence in two-dimensional semiconductors.
