"Arrive at" is used for definite places like stadium, opera house...
"Arrive in" is used for places when your location is not clear like in France, in London...
"Arrive to", I'm not quite sure but it seems not to be used for location. You may say "the committee arrived to a genaral consensus". Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I guess "arrived to" is for action
Eg: I have arrived to "demolish" you.

Not sure, but I haev seen "arrived to" being used for common place
Eg: They first arrived to work
