    以前 and 之前 is almost the same, can be used after other words which indacating a period of time like "3天以前/3天之前".
    从前 must be used alone indicating "log long time ago"

    Hope it helps

    用法应该差不多,只不过感觉“之前”更书面化,正式。“以前”口语常用。“从前”文章中多见。 这三个词可以混用,没什么大差别,给人的感觉有细微不同而已。

    For example: 从前有座山,山里有个庙。

    以前和之前的意思差不多。以前较为口语化,之前较为书面化。 从前一般用在故事里。
